    I too noticed the '03+ get a non-painted top, but I never thought that it was made of a different material.

    The STi cap is a good idea performance-wise, but people have reported radiator leaks from the increased pressure, so I think I'll hold off until I upgrade mine.
    I have an MY02. Most '02's came with a black pained top. I wish I would have gotten it replaced when I went in for warranty repair for my clutch shudder replacement. No I'm fuqd. They won't do any repairs with my big Hyperflow TMIC.

    Right now I am using the Blitz blue top radiator cap. It holds pressure fine. I am just praying for no leaks.
