You can simply add LED bulbs. However that's said, the projectors in our cars are made for halogen and if you switch to LED, your beam pattern or brightness my differ. YMMV.

This thread answered my question but I am curious how those who have put LED bulbs in the optima work with the projectors? I'm love LEDs but am hesitant because of the projectors?

Different LED lights will project light differently.

Our LED headlight kits are specifically designed and engineered for the Kia Optima.

Feel free to reach out if you’re interested in what we have available, or check out our website

I guess you're talking about the 6,000 Lumen Cree headlight/foglight kits? Is there a high beam LED as well? I like everything to match. Lots of good reviews on your site about these lights!

That is one of the two that we carry, yes.

You would need to determine your bulb size for your high beams, the best approach being removing one of the bulbs and looking what is marked right on it. Headlight bulbs are not sold based on where they go, they’re based on the bulb size. Feel free to reach out to us through email once you determine the bulb size, and we will point you in the right direction.

Can anyone other than David comment on these lights? I know David is doing his job and is very informative but I'd love some feedback from customers if possible?? Thanks!

I realize you just joined here 16 days ago. I’ve been on this forum for over 10 years now, and this site used to be extremely active, but it died out a few years ago, and in 2021, there are hardly any members active here. Trying to get random buyers of our product to comment feedback in this thread might be very hard to do.

Please take a moment to click on the links below to see the reviews from verified buyers who have purchased the product from us, and taken the time to leave feedback. We use a 3rd party review company called Yotpo who verifies that there is a purchase for the person leaving a review so that they can’t be tweaked or modified.

There are 50 reviews from verified buyers on our RGB color changing LED headlights, and over 100+ reviews from verified buyers on our 6000 Lumen CREE LED headlight or fog light kit.

Thanks and you may have seen I already put an order in yesterday! haha ordered the interior light kit and the upgraded reverse lights. I'll probably order the LED headlights soon just want to verify the bulbs that are in my 2011. Thanks though for the explanation bud!

Absolutely, you’re very welcome. It’s true, they definitely change and flow differently over the years. My pleasure, and we did get those out yesterday for you as well. No problem at all, happy to help, and your 2011 model should use H11B bulbs. Please feel free to reach out anytime if you have questions, we’re always here to help.
