Mango's right about the ET failing, and cooling system is a great way to invest money. Thermostat is seemingly more likely to fail than ET and WP, but eventually everything will.

You can also wait for things to fail and spend money when you have to, but you'll have to pay for a tow truck also. Life is a gamble!

Sounds like you'll be good at this!
Haha^ I change my oil every 5000 kilometers not miles. This is where I expect to be called a noob
