    The SAPS has its own garages.

    I don't often see much consideration given to maintenance in Africa.

    Maintenance has no place in a decolonised society.

    Mechanical fault is direct consequence of management fault.

    Yes but replacing a turbo is part and parcel of this maintenance.

    However those very same GTI5ís in those abused hands actually lasted longer in their opinion probably for being driven harder all the time, over the same car from regular consumers.

    These are all hotter than stock as well. And if their turbo dies they are automatically upgraded to K04ís and not replaced with OEM.

    He told me most would only have a turbo failure upwards of 250k.

    Partly why they rate the GTI5 as an infinitely superior car over what came after.

    He canít understand why on earth they switched to Lexus now.

    That is Affirmative Action for you. And why you want the Apartheid regime methods reintroduced? You #racist

    lols @ maintenance & turbos comments. It's a hell of a lot simpler.

    Step 1: Car breaks down
    Step 2: Find shady cop
    Step 3: Swop broken part with cop car. Cop receives bribe
    Step 4: Now broken cop car goes to the shop to be repaired on taxpayer's dime

    Then people wonder why all the cars are constantly in for repairs and break down again the second they're out.

    Just industrial strength TIA at work

    Everything needs to be done with at least the three quote system.
    Emergency orders are the exception, but then theyd have to be explained at the next finance meeting.

    A relative of mine is fairly high up in a government department. The entire buildings internet went down, for more than a week cos finance didnt pay the bill.

    He paid for some mobile data out of pocket to get his department running. He had to attend a disciplinary for not following procedure
    That is not what I said was rubbish. What I said was rubbish, was that someone takes a punctured wheel to Tiger Wheel and Tyre to get it repaired out of your pocket. If they don't claim the repair fees back (~R50), nothing will come of it. If they do claim the repair fees back, they will in all likelihood just get refunded from the department from petty cash of which the 3 quote system is not needed.

    So like I said, he is talking horse ****. Nobody will get fired. It is not even an option.
