    The #SaferCarsforAfrica Thread (Global NCAP)

    "Child safety of the Ignis achieved a low score because Suzuki did not recommend a CRS for the test." It's not like parents go and buy child car seats that are recommended by manufacturers anyway. And even some of the recommended seats did not fare well in certain tests. IIRC recently there...

    10x investments

    *2019 Bump* Are 10X RAs good? I never had an RA before, but now I'm looking at getting one as my employer wants to give me an additional % of my salary towards one for retirement... I wanted to sign up with them now but the HelloPeter page is scaring me somewhat. @supersunbird I would...

    Huawei P30 and P30 Pro

    I'm due for an upgrade with Telkom mobile but waiting/hoping for pricing to come down a bit. I find it hard justify spending R800pm on a 100 minute contract. Failing that, I may go for the Mate 20 pro or a Note 9 as the new models drops...
