  1. Re: Disco 4 for 120k, Scary Cheap, must be broken

    I bought a car from them recently. Deal comes with a guarantee (can't remember now how long, might have been at least 2 months). If this is the case here, this could be a real steal, unless the price...

    Re: What GPS or TOM TOM?

    I see Tomtom is leaving SA I'm told. Was always a Garmin fan, until I started using the Tomtom and found the live traffic very good, far better than Garmin (that was up until about 3 years ago).
