    It's not love it's lust.

    those supermodels are all well and good, until they start with the temperamental nonsense, and you need to constantly lavish them with cash to keep them willing.

    soon you work out you can't actually take them anywhere except special occasions.

    good fun for a few evenings here and there, but a long term nightmare.

    mind you.

    you drive a Ford.

    you are probably used to it!

    Really, honestly, isn't a M3 a BMW.

    Even Mahindra have managed to reinvent themselves and generate more enthusiasm than BMW.

    What happened.

    I was at the local shopping centre today and there was a youngster in a brand new red SLS 63 AMG. The sound of the 5.5l V8 bi-turbo is simply the most primal of all sounds ever created - and I also fell out of love with my truck!

    A friend of mine owns one of these...a bit older model. He said that at first he was complaining about the fuel consumption but after paying R48k at the 30k km service for brakepads he no longer complains about fuel. It costs him R1.5 per km on brakepads.

    At 30k the ranger is still under service plan. The only reason he had to pay in, was because he neglected his service intervals, and he had to pay a penalty.
