The style of your Optima means that you’re happy to be seen driving it and the comfort means that you’re happy to drive it all day so it’s an important tool in your day to day life. You need it to be running at its best at all times but servicing and maintaining it can only achieve so much so you need the right upgrades. Thankfully, we have a wide range of them so you can find everything you need in one place and our Kia Optima air intakes are the best place to start.

An air intake regulates the type of air reaching your engine which is important because your engine uses air and fuel to run. There are different types of aftermarket intakes with different improvements like the short ram intake which allows a higher flow of air to reach your engine by removing restrictions or the cold air intake which will give your engine cooler air that can be burnt with less effort. We have them at low prices so you get value for money and the wide range means that you can get just the right performance to suit your driving style!

    2012 Kia Optima Cold Air Intake
    Fit perfectly in my Kia Optima. Opens up the engine bay tremendously. Took me about an hour for the whole installation. Instructions were easy to follow telling you what to do step by step. I could hear the difference in the sound of the car as soon as I pulled out of the driveway! You can just hear the air s*cking into the intake as you accelerate! I'll give this product 2 thumbs up! Great quality and great sound! This is a great upgrade for your car that I would recommend to anyone trying to improve sound and performance!
