I am thinking if you have four sets of the Sumitomos you are probably set for most of this century.
Oh. Ha ha. I meant 4 plug wires(just 1 set).

...but probably enough to last the 2nd 'life-span' of this car. Bought it with 230k miles. Now approaching 240k. Still getting it back in shape.

if you check the resistance of each wire with a multimeter you can tell if they are good or bad. did your tech do it or did he just change them? oem used honda wires have been tested againt aftermarket new and more expensive wires and have consistently outperformed them. plus they fit and look better in my opinion. some autoparts wires are less expensive but can pop out and let you run on 3 or less cylinders.

The dealer products are always top notch, more expensive but they will outlast and outperform any aftermarket product. So dont skimp on maintenance.
