Yep ,as my South African friend says a BMW is a poor mans Mercedes ? 

Wouldn't have it other than running out an ex employee's contract. Not sure why they left, but the car could have helped his decision!

Don't forget, I mentioned it earlier...Don't. Ever. Buy. A BMW 216 D. They are an abomination. It handles like a bag of wool, even in sports mode. It's got less power than the lib dems and looks like the illegitimate offspring of a Vauxhall Meriva and  BMW 1 series. Unpreposessing join the extreme.

Herr Flick from the projects department said "Yah ve must make a car for das tall hatchback segment nein?"

"Ya I know it vill be ganz scheiBBe, but ve must do somesing nein?" "Ze board vant it, zo ve must make vun schnell schnell"

And so the BMW 2 series was born

Ja, genauch! 

I've had VW Tourans in the past and they were fine, both performance and looks, cannot understand why the 2 series ended up such a complete Hund!

They say lots of funny things in SA. My South African friend says there wont be too many BMWs and Mercedes in SA once the confiscation without compensation project kicks in. There wont be too many northerners to drive them either if folks dont stop the madness

They know that with the possibly exception of Trump, western governments wont do much if anything. Many, many times worse than Rhodesia

Well there is that for sure, but I try to keep up with SA and so many farm murders over the last few years. A campain of terror. If the land 'reform' plans go forward, which they seem set to do, I dont see how the violence and killing cannot be way worse than Zim. Much bigger populations for a start. Plus the farmers are not going to just hand over the keys and go. Plus the confiscations wont stop with a few farms. They will come for the homes, business, apartments - you name it.

Those that have been able to get out and those that still can are mostly those with money to do so. A lot of people are heavily mortgaged or with crippling loans which means if they sell, they will have little or no capital and no real means of leaving and starting up elsewhere. Plenty take the view that their ancestors have been there since the 1600s, so why should they leave?
