    Re: Cost of Ownership - Mini

    I had a R56 Cooper S, so turbo 1.6.

    It is by far the most fun car I've ever owned. It drove incredibly well, handled like it was on rails, interior fit and finish was perfect.

    You should never...
  2. Re: Condition of N3 from JHB to Villiers and the R26 from Villiers To Clarens

    Unless I had a reason to do the R26 I honestly just do N3/N5. I do the N3 from Villiers to Ladysmith every week, and while there is road works, it hasn't added much to the trip. The N5 from...
  3. Re: Condition of N3 from JHB to Villiers and the R26 from Villiers To Clarens

    N3 should be fine, I get off at Villiers, and there's loads of roadworks from there going to Durban, but not sure about the portion you'll be driving. Did the R26 about a year ago and it was fine....

    Hi Gareth, the unit I had fitted was a Sony XAV-AX1000, and as far as I know, did Apple CarPlay only, not android auto. Cost for the unit, installed, with facia, was about R6k. I consider it a...

    I must agree with this. My Mini had pano roof, with a mesh sliding covers that I imagine someone in Europe thought would help with diffusing harsh light, but it did nothing for the heat. Fortunately...

    This assumes you have excess capacity when you want it. Nett metering is IMO (and with a stable grid to back it up), the best solution. You can reduce the need for expensive batteries, and the grid...

    Between a FL2 and a Pajero or PS, I'm very biased, but would go Mitsu. I've had a 3.2 Gen4 Pajero, which I loved, and currently a 2.5 PS, which is hands down my favourite Mitsubishi I've owned. I get...

    The point is you don't need to. There is adjustment at the headlights that you set once, and then the auto levelling keeps it there.
