You probably should have a Lithium battery backup for the dash cam?Mi_eg has just had its last visit to the dealer, out of warranty and the nearby workshop is much more reliable.
A heads up… it had a new battery while it was there ($500) .. it is a big battery and I could not find a non genuine replacement.
Battery was slowly dying and I wondered why.
I eventually decided that the camera wakes up and takes a bit of footage every time someone walks past the truck in the garage.
As it spends a lot of it's life sleeping the average charge was probably on the low side and slowly killed it...
On a similar note I get my Harley serviced by a place that has an association with the Hells Angels.If it is where i think it is, I'd trust him over a Porsche dealership any day! He does a lot of work on race/track cars in this area as well.
He's done work on some of my cars as well over the years.
Anything can be broken if one mistreats it long enough. I have only broken one clutch and that was many years ago in my Bolwell, when I was much younger and drove more 'enthusiastically'.A bright young engineer bought one of the first wrx's made, he was super excited and insisted on taking anyone and everyone for a blast.
I recall being impressed at the 4paw traction as he did his little sprint demo.
He only managed a few days of demo's before the clutch gave out….
Subaru paid for one but told him the next one would be on him.
I believe that he subsequently invested in a lot of clutches before moving on to something more robust..
They handle well...as long as you like understeer. But they make the best noise on the planet.Currently driving a pre-facelift Audi RS3, pretty much untouchable in a straight line. Had an engine re-tune with a couple supporting modifications, managed 0-100 in 3.5secs.
Don't really trust the handling capabilities of the car through.
