To those of you who grew up with the Family Computer, you might want to visit the RetroGamersPH. It is one of the very few shops in the Philippines that specializes in retro gaming consoles. Parking is very limited so make sure to give them a heads up before dropping by.
I purchased a few game cartridges to complete my retro gaming console.

EcoSport’s dashboard may be upgraded with compatible head unit replacement kits, some of which offer full integration to the car’s computer system (via compatible ports) as well as viewing monitors with touch screen functionality.
EcoSport’s luggage compartment’s light bulb may be replaced by prying out the luggage compartment’s light bulb assembly, and then replacing the bulb by pulling it out from its socket. The luggage compartment light uses a W5W light bulb, identical to the ones used in cabin dome and reading lights as well as the rear plate number lights, with LED replacements available.
EcoSport’s third brake light may be removed by prying out two metal clips that secure it in place. To watch a video on how to remove the third brake light assembly, head directly to Removing EcoSport’s Brake Light Assembly.
The dreaded check engine light appeared on our dashboard when we were climbing a steep hill in Tagaytay. We believe that the error was tripped by poor combustion since it appeared precisely at the moment when the car was struggling, with the RPM dropping below idling levels (below 900 RPM). We did not reset anything, we simply parked and leave the car for about 30 minutes. When we restarted it, the error has disappeared.
The error appeared when our EcoSport was still at 31,000 km. The car now has covered more than 55,555 km, and the error has not reappeared.

Yankee Candle also offers air fresheners for cars called Charming Scents. It is essentially a scented material placed on a stylish locket that you hang on the car’s rear view mirror. The scented material must be replaced every 2-3 months, with lots of variants to choose from. Additional charms may also be purchased to further accessorize your car.
Having tried out other brands with different scents and employing different dispensing methods, as a matter of personal preference, we believe that these scented charms are one of the best car air fresheners available in the local market.

The remote key of an EcoSport (across all variants) uses the battery designated as CR2032: C refers to the battery chemistry (lithium type), R refers to the shape (round), 20 and 32 refer to the dimensions (20 mm in diameter, 3.2 mm in thickness).
Early warning devices (EWDs) are signaling devices used to alert other motorists of a road emergency, and must be used whenever a vehicle is stopped on the road for any reason. EWDs are mandatory accessories for all motorized vehicles, as required by law.
