    Hi Mate,

    Brake duct is one way of doing it I have also seen the cold intake mounted in the front bumper just left of the foglight.

    I'm sure someone can shed a bit more light on it also there's lots of vids kicking about on youtube that you could use as a reference point.

    Hope this helps.

    Might be the horn or the carbon canister?
    Just poke it anywhere down that direction, avoid kinks, and it'll be OK.

    Don't get it too close to the ground, as you can suck up a puddle and hydrolock the engine.

    The circular units sound like the Outside temperature sensor for the OBC and the ambient temp sensor
