    Welcome,

    Many happy miles with your Amarok. You certainly will have enough mud to practice in.

    Confused, from Manchester and buy a black car?

    its dark blue

    We have a lot of rain in Manchester but not much mud.

    The uk is tiny. Makes me smile that people think we have more rain than say Liverpool, which is a 30 min drive away. Not that you would ever want to.

    Spent a bunch of time in the UK.

    in the early 80's lived in Rugby for some three months and since then a regular visitor on business. Did lots of business in Manchester and Longridge. Have not been back for probably 8 years. Miss it.

    Bakkie, never hear that term before.

    I love it so far. Just need to sort those speakers out and add some bass.

    Iíve lived all over Manchester other than north manchester.

    Dop, tjops, braai, izzit? just now, now now, robots (aka traffic lights) And there are countless other South African terms I'm sure you've never heard of before if you've never heard one of the most common ones, 'bakkie'.

    'Swambo' is also a very frequently used term in these forums. It means 'She who always must be obeyed'. We use this term when referring to our wives and girlfriends.

    Born and raised South African, and I had to marry a Belgian. (It was mostly for access to the beer) You must hear her mimmic an SA accent. I tell her something, and she replies with 'izzit?' like no other South African can.
