so im curious - did you get any performance gains with the removal of the stock intake box and your new filter? also on my 05 i noticed a huge improvement in handling and somewhat spritely acceleration when i replaced my stock steelies with some wrx alloys, i think the steelies are approx 23 lbs and the alloys are 16! if your not averse to it, go to a local scrap yard and you can get a decent set for cheap (and for god sake weigh them before replacing yours and with any luck you'll see your stock steelies and you can weigh them as well but i'd stick to OEM suby ones, there IS a write up on which wheels work on the forester and you'd be surprised how people forget to mentiono the one thing that's important, the weight of the wheels themselves :)
other than that i'm a little jealous of how clean your interior looks - i also replaced the speakers in mine and it make a world of difference as the OEM ones were 1) old and 2) just cheap and crappy to begin with.

btw. what's with the black patch in the drivers carpet? is that a patch job or something on the floor by mistake? - one happy day i'll replace my carpet with the XS one which apparantly is way better quality.(nvr let the kids in the back seat!)
