Keep your factory look and controls

This Restyle package lets you install an oversized Alpine receiver while keeping your factory look. The package contains a dash kit that's been specially designed to make the big Alpine 8" screen look right at home in your Optima with the premium Infinity amplified system.

Plug it in and go

You'll need to hardwire your new Alpine to the car's parking brake, foot brake, and reverse trigger. Once that's done, the two included wiring harnesses plug directly from the Alpine receiver into your vehicle's factory wiring harnesses — no extra splicing or soldering needed. The package also includes a steering wheel audio control interface — no programming necessary, just plug it in and go. And if your Kia has Bluetooth®, you'll need to make a couple of extra connections, but this package will retain your steering wheel controls for Bluetooth and the factory microphone as well. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

Features

In-Dash Restyle Systems: The Alpine in-dash navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of In-Dash Restyle System packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's In-Dash Restyle System installation packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. In-Dash Restyle Systems are designed to cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior. 

Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-OPT8 In-Dash Restyle System allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation head unit in select 2011-2013 Kia Optima vehicles with factory Infinity premium amplified systems. This In-Dash Restyle System Installation Package will retain the factory Bluetooth mic (if equipped) and steering wheel controls (adapter included). As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-OPT8 In-Dash Restyle System has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select 2011-2013 Kia Optima vehicles perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine In-Dash Restyle System includes direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.

Vehicle+Radio Harness: This In-Dash Restyle System comes with a vehicle+radio harness for simple installation between the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver and your 2011-2013 Kia Optima. You get all the necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver in your 2011-2013 Kia Optima. The vehicle+radio harness contains two Molex connectors which plug into your Kia Optima's factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness is a 16-pin Alpine radio connector which plugs into the radio connector port on the back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver, and a 10-pin connector which plugs into the included SWC interface module. There is also a 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen, if your vehicle has factory Bluetooth. In addition, you will need to make hardwired connections between the supplied vehicle+radio harness and your vehicle's Parking brake (Yellow/blue), Foot brake (Yellow/black), and Reverse trigger (Orange/white).

Steering Wheel Controls: The In-Dash Restyle System also includes a steering wheel remote interface module. For 2011-2013 Kia Optima vehicles with factory steering wheel audio controls, the KTX-OPT8 retains the capability to control the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver's volume, source, playback controls, and Bluetooth functions. There is no additional programming required, simply plug & play. The 3.5mm connector of the steering wheel interface plugs into the 3.5mm remote input of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver.
