  2. Re: Is Toyota consciously limiting stock to inflate demand and thus prices?

    I guess it all comes down to how stupid the customer is, if they are willing to pay the inflated price, then dealers will continue doing this.

    New car prices and even 2nd hand are continuing to...

    Discovery 3 Re: Disco Fiasco - what would you do?

    I stand by the saying, if you can't afford a new one, then you shouldn't buy one second hand. Still remains a R1M + car and repairs are in the same price range.

  18. Re: Can a tyre with slight flat spots smooth out over time?

    The cars that were built PQ24 (polo 9n etc) were especially prone to this.
    Also called sawtooth wear on the rear tyres.
