Just because something is "nothing new" doesn't make it right or justified.
exactly this, especially if you spend ,billions on fancy cars, that will either be written off in the first 6 months.
or get stolen, or even suffer breakdowns that take them off the streets for a long time.

I mean they could have brought double the amount of datsun go's but they decided to blow other peoples money on a fleet of BMW's

SAPS don't pay market price for their vehicles, and no doubt there BMW footed a lot of the bill.
Where does it state BMW footed part of the bill? And I know government gets cars slightly cheaper from manufacturers, but recently manufacturers like Mercedes, VW and BMW have drastically cut these discounts to a point where a normal citizen can get it cheaper with a little discount from the dealer.

Even if they got them for free, they are not the most economical to maintain. The fuel bill alone for these cars will be insane. I suspect tires, brakes etc will also come in at a pretty penny.
