    How did he get a cool foreign plate like that?

    The car is clearly not from Germany as the plate states because the steering wheel is on the right (correct) side.

    Kilometers VS Kilograms - which exercise is best?

    So I'm turning 30 in the middle of this year and I want to be about the same weight as I was back in high school. Last year November I started walking which progressed into running and now sometimes cycling too (doing a 95km ride tomorrow). I use a sports tracker to keep log of all my...

    JD Power agrees with Rouxenator on cars (told you so!)

    Many times I am ridiculed and called a troll because I recommend cars other than what the mainstream thinks is good. I am very fond of Eastern cars - in particular Korean option and I have a pet hate for anything VAG. When I bought a Opel Corsa last year I compared it the VW Polo and found that...

    Upgrading from Compact 1110i to HD PVR

    Currently I have a DStv Compact 1110i decoder. I am thinking of getting a HD PVR but only for PVR functionality, not HD channels, XtraView and other nonsense. My question is this, can I simply but the HD PVR from game and put my smart card in it and use it as a PVR? In other words, is it...

    ABS+EBD on a car with drums at the back

    I have been wondering for a while now how they can have ABS and EBD on a car that only has discs in the front and drums in the rear. The EBD part I can understand, that is just distribution of the braking power, but how do they do ABS on rear drum brakes?

    N8 pictures

    Seeing as Nokia has launched the next "imaging king" phone I thought that a thread where N8 users can post their good shots (taken with an N8 of course) would be a good idea. To start off with, some pics I took at the Botanical Gardens in Stellenbosch today : Fullsize links ...

    MXit API - is MyBroadband going to cover it?

    Having been involved with the company that started MXit long before GPRS was even available in SA, I was invited to attend the launch of their new API on Friday in Stellenbosch. There was quite a bit of press and even Arthur Goldstruck attended. Did anyone from MyBroandband attend and are you...

    The most data you have done on dial-up ?

    This is my record from back in 2003 : Done using a Lucent LT WinModem on a R7 Weekend call special from Telkom. The line quality is exceptional because this is a farm line that only had 2 lines going to the exchange (800m away). The ISP was ABSA (free internet).

    Since the joint venture between Opel and Suzuki came to an end there has been a few concepts on how to replace the sub Corsa level Agila (Suzuki Splash). The new name will be the Allegra and it is set to be built on the same platform as the new GM Spark. On the style front it is still unclear...

    Meriva - in teal gay blue!

    Ever since the VAG boys gave Oriental Blue the new name of "teal gay blue" I have begun to like the colour even more. So here are some more of this "fab" colour on the funky new Meriva, especially for the VAG boys ;) Who needs gullwing doors when you can have suicide doors ? So there...

    Safest colour for a car? Does it matter?

    It is said that in snowy countries it is considered a higher risk to drive a white car or even a silver one. Here in SA it seems that black cars are considered a high risk, or at least they were a few years ago anyway. Is there any truth is in this? Are some cars really more prone to be in...

    Owning property - investment or not ?

    Your favorite car not sold in SA ?

    With the advent of the internet many people got the chance to learn a lot more about the model ranges of car makers. Some models are sold under different model or brand names in other countries with different spec levels - often better than what we get here in SA. For example, did you know the...
