carbon-fiber-wrapped hood struts. We really like gas lift hood struts -- they make working on the car so much easier. Install on these was also easy. The struts have just the right pressure to lift up the hood, but they don't spring it up so hard it's going to hit you in the chin.
The benefit is that you don't have to use the prop rod, and you don't have to worry about hitting yourself in the head with the rod and/or collapsing the hood down onto your head while working on the engine. Not that that's ever happened to me, of course...

Not everything is happy in BRZ Land. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the right tail lamp has a bunch of condensed water drops in it, and it's starting to get a little mossy-looking in there. This is a known issue with these cars, and Subaru should replace the lamp under warranty. We'll check back when we've resolved the issue.
