YOUR car is 8 years old. Even if you bubble wrap it all this time, some components will fail over time due to AGE. nothing to do with use or abuse.

Thanks for all the advices, bros. Decided to bring forward the change to 70k for the peace of mind since I will still have to do it whether now (70k) or at 80k.

3M Solar Film - Authorised Installer ?

I have just replaced my Civic ES5 windscreen. Looking to install the 3M Crystallined Film since it does not interfere with GPS.

Amp on standby

Why is there a need for the amp to be on standby when the car is off. It is drawing current from battery when my car is not used. I drive it over the weekend and my batt is low during start of engine. I m think of having a switch before the power cable to amp.
