No mention of the R35k being CTC or take home pay...
LOL! Thanks for the wisdom oum Roux!HAHAHA! Just sharpen up your C#(sharps) skills then. Oh, and don't impregnant the women you love and who drive your current Opel. Cause that will cost a lot more.
Yet I would not be completely honest if I did not credit all of my good car knowledge to my VAG collecting buddy. My best friend since Std 4 and someone so incredibly knowledgeable on cars I am so glad to have him as friend. And he is a true friend - like remember that first time when you went for a test drive in a 407 V6 coupe and it was ****? Well you're VAG collecting buddy was there besides you and made you smile when he let you try the new Toureg V8 4.2 with Adaptive Cruise Control.
Take it slow. Super slow when you buy a 407.
Haha, OK I'll entertain you. R39K take home. CTC is beyond 60. Still... I am married to a PhD that brings home about R10k. She pays most of the kids costs so I can't complain. She has this habbit of qouting myBB text about getting the Astra H whenever I tell her to use my Corsa D. Honestly if you ever wanted to see myBB play such a big part in the lives of average poor folks this would be it. For those that missed my last car craze : https://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/661290-Should-I-or-shouldn-t-I-buying-a-slightly-new-car yes in 2014! I can take it back more if you like.No mention of the R35k being CTC or take home pay...
Problem is I'm starting to justify it in my head.Had an i3 drive past me yesterday as I was crossing the road.
Wow that thing is snappy and silent AF.
Looking at the 1st episode of The Grand Tour, the Porsche specifically, it looks like a step in the right direction.Problem is I'm starting to justify it in my head.
We already have one family car that we can use for the cross country trips; this would be to get the wife to work and back, do the weekend chores.
OK I'm not actually going to get one, but it does give me pause.
My td was only a few km's so to your answer your question one needs to research that lol.How many km can you do on electric only? Does it have a switch for "electric only", "fuel only" and "both"? (Like the Porsche)
Forgot to add.My td was only a few km's so to your answer your question one needs to research that lol.
Wrt to electric only or fuel only depends on the model. The normal i3 model is electric only while the Rex (range extender) model has a small petrol fuel tank to (well) extend the range. Everything is done seamless.
I drove the non-REx model & all that instant torque from zero revs & regenerative braking make for a very special driving experience.
We're the only two folks who post in the Ampera-e thread...lolI'd love a Ampera-e even though it does not reach the 500km range in real life, 380km is still good enough. I would use it for longer trips, for short trips I stick to my bike.
However as for my want to buy car, it is still the same. The one that started it all stopped next to me at a traffic light yesterday
