Change the relays for sure. I did in my 14. Worth is solely for the peace of mind.

I've found that if you break hard a few times the squeaking goes away. It only happens to me when I'm nearing a complete stop. I think the hard braking heats up the pads which causes the squeaking to stop. I thought it was the brake dust so I took some compressed air and sprayed it in between the pads but that did nothing...

One of the best things that you can do, even if you don't regularly speed. The buddy system only goes so far...

Factory alignment is horrible. The 3 diamond logo was crooked and my wheel was shifted to the left when I was going completely straight when I first bought the car brand new from the dealership. Also had 38psi in the tires. Drained em down to 32. Will check again when the temperature gets colder. (hot air causes air to expand while cold air causes contraction)

AWC Pump failure around 60k (possibly due to cold weather starts). Noticed a ton of threads and just happened to me at 54k. CELS are C161E & C161F. 2k for new one, 600ish for rebuild

Yes it does. Especially the relays.

So this has been driving me crazy, no pun intended. I have a '13 GSR and the alignment is out of whack. When I drive in a straight line, the steering wheel logo is crooked to the left.

So you guys think the best thing to do is realign the car often?
I keep my tires at 32psi (cold) and I haven't hit a curb or anything.

I'm looking to buy a used Evo X as a second car / track car. any suggestions? any differences in the years of 08-12? from what I found so far its better to buy a non molested one and of course the lower the miles the better. Any thing in particular I should look for?
