    Any advice on ex Rental cars for sale?

    Maybe in Scotty's part of the world, but utter bollocks in South Africa - rentals are a far better buy than the average trade in, I promise you.

    Nothing wrong with that - perfectly acceptable - he'll be getting the original when he pays for it anyway.

    Buying a VW golf 4 1.9 TDI 2004 - need some advice

    No, that's all I've had to do apart from regular servicing. :)

    Buying a VW golf 4 1.9 TDI 2004 - need some advice

    It went into limp mode about 1 km from home, so I quietly drove home and got it sorted. Not much oil in the intercooler, so all was fine. I had replaced the cams about 200 km before that.

    Buying a VW golf 4 1.9 TDI 2004 - need some advice

    Yes, it started hitting a wall at 3500 rpm and at that point I booked it in. Everything gets checked when I service - the joy of doing it yourself :)

    Buying a VW golf 4 1.9 TDI 2004 - need some advice

    I bought a TDi in 2014, now done 284000 km - pure bliss, fantastic fuel consumption, comfortable, quiet, everything you need in a car. I replaced cams last year, and rebuilt the turbo just in case, otherwise just serviced, and that's all.

    Can't obtain license disc due to another car still in my name

    In theory, if you have all the paperwork, as you say, then it doesn't matter where the seller is. All they should have done is sign the yellow form, which should have been submitted anyway.

    License plate numbers...

    The Western Cape still follows this pattern. Just Eastern Cape and Northern Cape that have gone the anonymous route.

    Mixing LRP with Unleaded

    Any car produced after 1990 in SA should be fine. If you cannot get LRP and want to stick to it(only for older cars, really), then you can buy an additive at the pump. I always used a bottle of William Pen Upper Cylinder Lubricant per tank on my Wolseley. Even if you cannot get it and you have...

    Trading in a car

    My dad's old XJ 6 - he bought her new in 1970 ( 2.8 manual) and sold it to a friend in 1973 when he bought a 4.2....move on down the road, and the guy who bought her is a hoarder, and in 1994, he drove her into the garage and left her there. Fast Forward to June this year, and my brother and I...

    2019 Subaru Forester (Gen 5)

    A remark like this always amazes me - obviously made by someone who has never owned a Forester, and probably never driven one either. Full Maintenance plan is included in the price and as for the loss of value, they are no more than the average car devaluation in SA - I saw the figures a couple...

    Importing a car from the UK to South Africa

    Hi there I presume that the car will arrive with all the relevant documentation and won't be cleared from the docks until you have completed everything on the customs side. After that I presume that you will be able to get a temporary registration certificate and drive home to Nelspruit where...
