Yes u should not have waxed. SG works best when its applied to new paint surfaces. Anyway, just give Mr Choong a call and set the appointment. But make sure u tell him you have already done waxing on the car.

If I have done waxing on the car, what would Mr Choong be doing? Remove whatever is on top and then only do the Sierra Glow? Just curious so that I know what to be expecting when I speak to Mr Choong.

Thanks in advance.

I bought 1 set 4 pieces. I heard KIA Malaysia is selling each side (the outer one) for almost 1K. I intend to keep or sell the outer one just incase someone needs it.

I saw the guide from Optima forums. But I am not up to that level yet. You can ask me to replace bulb, not a problem, but to remove bumper... rclxub.gif

I bought the full set including the outer light. But I only intend to change the inner one only and keep the outer one for backup since KIA MALAYSIA is selling each side (the outer one) for almost 1K

What warranty do they cover for tail lights? hmm.gif

well, u gonna have to re-wire the fog lamp(current) to normal nightlamp plus brake light if u intend to put the one u purchased(full strip taillight). And of course the rear foglamp at the steering toggle.

Good Luck !!

p/s: bro bUGG damn rich lar !! hahaaha

just wanna add here. I have seen a website selling only the inner part of the tail light, but i cant find it back. Someone from V1 posted the seller website, and i went in and found it that time. Now dunno where lioaw.


Added on August 15, 2012, 4:36 pmthat optima forum from US oso got a good write up on how to swap OEM suspension spring with lowered spring. 2~4 hrs job w/o any special tools oso. Seems very easy too..hahaha

You are right, have to re-wire. Because I have seen someone already did it (one of the owner here), thats why I dare to buy.

Yes, someone actually ordered from Jayong Mall just the inner part for about 350USD. That one have to speacial order, email to Jayong Mall.

I am also interested in the full tail lights trip. But I don't see the point in buying the full set of light. Currently trying to work out from a contact to purchase both the left and right inner tail light only.. Hope to get a good deal. Then I ll get someone to fix it for me..


Added on August 15, 2012, 5:31 pmJuz need to rewire to make the inner portion the continuous light/brake light. And also it can act as the fog lamp when u switch the fog lamp switch...
