    Why do newer cars tend to have smaller/less powerful engines?

    Is it because of fuel economy? Surely that can't be the only reason? Is there something I'm missing? Example; 2012 i20 1.6l engine 91kw 2016 i20 1.4l engine 74kw Why would I want a less powerful engine? Unless they are trying to make you buy an i30 or an Elantra? or are the newer engines...

    Is buying an older Hyundai Veloster worth it?

    Hi guys, a while ago I made a thread saying I wanna car in the 100-150k price range. I have seen a few Velosters going for around 150, usually 2013/2014 models. Are these any good? Expensive to maintain? I do see they are only 1.6l with 103 kw, so im assuming it shouldn't be overly expensive...

    Where to buy a proper PC Desk?

    Hi guys, my budget is around R2000-R2500 for a decent PC desk. All I really need is something that can slide out (where the keyboard goes) and a desk space big enough for my PC and monitors. Kinda like this I guess, but it doesn't need to be like this. Just big enough to have the keyboard...

    How do you even communicate with Takealot?

    Ordered a bunch of stuff on Takealot. The one little R70 fan I ordered, they say it has been cancelled and they credited my account. Okay cool, I see it's in stock for R70 still, but from another re-seller. So I order it again, but... I have to pay shipping? So nothing has actually shipped yet...

    How hot should a phones battery get?

    Nvm. Answered my own question. How hot is too hot? Remember, all phones get hot. But how can you tell if your phone is experiencing a problem? All phones have a normal temperature range of 37-43 degrees Celsius, or 98.6-109.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Since we don’t (yet) have thermometers in our...

    Contract Upgrade came with a sim card? Can I just ignore it?

    Hi, this is my first time upgrading. I went from the p20 lite to the p30 lite 2020 edition But ram delivered my package with a sim card and the phone - does this mean the contract is on this new simcard? I mean, why would my number change? That's odd? Is that the norm?

    Is a 36 month contract worth it? With regards to 5G?

    I'm assuming all phones coming out in the next 24 months will most likely be 5G, now that Samsung has released phones with 5G. This is definitely going to be the next norm. As a result, I'm hesitant to get say, a Samsung Note 10 Lite or A71 over a 36 month contract, because 3 years from now, 5G...
