Hi, this is "Argo II" from Idaho (any Greek mythology geeks out there?) I just adopted a 2015 Optima EX and I am in love 馃挅 His name is Zachery. I am quite intimidated by all the technology! I have never driven anything but old compact cars with manual everything and no frills! I am here because I want to learn about cars, and because I want to drive Zachery forever or 999,999 miles, whichever comes first.

Welcome and I thought I was going to see another movie, Argo II, guess not, but have fun with Zachery, hope he treats you with compassion and with 999,999 miles as a target, good luck.

Hello!
I am also in love with my new 2016 Optima LX.
This is my first nice car, all my other vehicles had major wear and tear when I got them and every single one leaked water into the interior, which is one reason I no longer find sunroofs or convertibles very tempting.
This is also the first time I have ever felt the desire to name my car, I haven鈥檛 yet though.

Jason and the Argonauts...and no I did not have to Google "Argo" to figure out what its tie-in to Greek mythology was.

I do have a question about your passenger seat riser kit! I am not handy, and would get them professionally installed, but what type of shop woyld do this? Would this be something I could ask the dealership to do, or would I go to a body shop?

Sure, happy to help answer any questions you have.

This kit is very straightforward to install, and any local automotive mechanic should be able to install it for you.

It does not require removal of the seat from the vehicle, so as long as they have the right tools to install it, it should be very easy to do.
