    Don't buy Chinese!

    Don't buy Chinese! ----------------- China has a spy apparatus like nothing else in the world. (We now know they even had a spy working for decades for US Senator Dianne Feinstein. Whose husband's company, coincidentally, made billions of dollars from Chinese contracts! Go figure.) China...

    So I've phoned the MTN number, I've emailed MTN, I've been to my local MTN dealer twice, I've been patient for 3 months, and STILL MTN are overcharging me R200 for a R199 contract deal I took out.

    Is this car really valuable or are they pulling my socks?

    I've got a 1988 VW Fox, 1800 I think, and the guys at work make jokes like how fast can it go if you push it after an energy drink, and so on.
