Anyone know what the pieces of foam behind the lower part of the bumper are for? I was doing a detailed wash the other day and noticed it on one side not he other. On closer inspection it looks like one of them fell of because there is a little spot where it looked like it was glued on. Obviously not a critical part but I'm just wondering if its worth trying to buy a replacement.

It's a baffle to guide air thru to your condenser and radiator. I've had a few of them, but Everytime I wash the car I realize they're barely holding on again.
Maybe try and fab up something more durable but not really a cause for concern without I don't think.

Speaking of intakes, mine also has been annoying (AEM) but the sound seemed not natural, like something was rattling. It was driving me crazy for a while, I started taping off and ziptying stuff that could have been culprits but the noise would come up at certain speeds and definitely when lifting off throttle, it kinda muddied up the BPV release sound... and I had no idea where it was coming from.

This weekend I plasti-dipped my grill and my little bro's wheels and I decided to take a look at the filter... and found the source of rattles!





See ^ how the filter is in contact with the fender liner? I don't know if there is no one else with an AEM intake and their fender liners rolled flat, but this contact is for sure the source of my rattles.

I didn't have time to try to come up with a fix, I was able to pull on the filter so that it would be offset from the liner, but obviously it wouldn't stay that way. I guess I can try to readjust the hose clamps and clock the whole intake a bit, but seeing how it's mounted to the heat shield, I'm not sure how much I can turn it that way. Any ideas?

In my WRX there is about a 3 inch tear in the floor carpeting on the drivers side, just in front of the right bracket bolting the seat down. Anyone have this happen? Not sure how it did because my feet don't rest there. Possibly could be from the floor mat rubbing there. I've only had it for 2 years, 14k miles.

click the bulb color tab, this should give you a good idea, I have this brand installed on mine, not as good as sti hid lights but they are nice and don't blind oncoming traffic. I went with 5k, looks like a stock color, even closer to stock look would be in the 4-4500k.
