Yea please let me know bro! Hopefully I can get it before March!
I definitely will!

Any news on a CF front grille yet bro?
Nope it's gonna be sometime before it's available to the public, we are having it made from scratch. So unfortunately will not be done in time for IA.

I am thinking maybe sometime in March. ;)

Just installed mine. Have that dreaded gap everyone seems to have. Is there no way to close that gap??? Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks

Looks good, that gap is hardly noticeable to me but is part of the design of the grille. Don't think there is anyway to make it go away. I think it looks great as is though.

Yeah I guess so. It doesn't really bother me that much but I can SEE it :) There is a good 1/2 to 3/4 inch of play in the piece above it though so just seems weird. I may pull it off and mess with the tabs a bit to see if I can close it up a bit.

Sounds like a plan, worse case scenario you could always sell it once the Carbon Fiber version is released. ;)

This is one of my personal favorite mods for the Optima, such a nice upgrade over the factory grille!

Roadruns grille V1 and V2 offer sleek styling with either mesh or honeycomb grille options!

I thought the whole front part of the 2013/14 optimas were the same?
No, unfortunately, that is not the case.

The 2011-2013 Kia Optima use the same bumpers.

The 2014-2015 Kia Optima use the same bumpers.

Unfortunately, the two different year ranges for the models in terms of the bumpers, they would not be cross compatible.
