Honestly though, why does everyone else have green coolant and mine came with pink?! WTF Kia....

Edit: Also why are we in the 2010-2013 section of the forum?

Didn't know the SX had a different scoop to be honest. Trying to limit how much money I'm dumping into a car with 194K miles so no K&N for me. Do you think the larger scoop makes a difference without the K&N? Maybe I'll try to find one.

Do you notice any different with the strut bar from the front end? Lowered/coilovers or factory struts?

Yeah it was the first stability mod that I did and I definitely noticed a difference.

Not lowered, factory springs, Sachs struts up front and Monroe shocks outback.

I doubt it. The only difference I noticed were an extra little smaller vent on each end. A good alternative if a K&N drop in filter.

I run Monroe on the rear too. KYB Excel-G on the front with factory springs. May have to pick up the front stabilizer bar before they stop selling them. :D
