    Yeah my fiance was a little confused by the exhaust tip - other subies we see around have a smaller tip, so we weren't sure! and the seats are super nice! uncomfortable when i first got it but good now!

    If you see more and more green fluid outside the cooling system there is less and less inside the cooling system. Check those 3 hoses for any signs of a leak (green or white smears, or green or white powder residue). If it's not one of the hoses it could be the cap itself, they have a membrane that can wear sometimes. Check now, see if you can find the remnants of a stream, and if not, wipe the surface clean and check again soon.

    Standing at the nose of the car facing the motor, there is a plastic reservoir of coolant to the right of the radiator at the very front. Make sure the coolant level is adequate (between the max and min lines marked on the side of the reservoir). If you do not have the correct coolant you can simply top up with distilled water (any grocery store, much cheaper, will not affect coolant dilution appreciably unless there is a leak -- and if there is a leak your coolant will get drained and replaced anyway).

    When you are done, do not push the hood shut with your hands. It is aluminium and can bend. Drop it shut from a reasonable height and tell any mechanic etc. to do the same.

    That axelback portion is stock for the blobeyes. They were similar or near the same as the STI exhausts that year and after. 05 seats started looking more like the racing seats (as an option or with a different package option)
    ohhh well now im informed lol

    Is the white nylon line running along the firewall from the rear upper portion of the intake near the left top of the IC a reference line for a boost gauge? If so at least the line routing, if not the gauge, is not stock I don't think.

    Yep was about to say. Factory boost line goes from the bpv. And that's not a 2005 turbo coolant tank. 2005's painted black
    T0rque: nevermind.
    That string bit looks like it's holding the pcv sensor switch thing.

    that nylon line seems to connects to the High Pressure outlet on the OEM BCS. I don't know if anyone noticed, but the OEM EBCS seems to be absent from the car. Likely the car is wired for an MBC.

    Actually, the 2004 WRXs had the same axlebacks as the bugeyes, but yes, they did change it for 2005, so she has the stock exhaust for her year.
