    Why do people buy shite cars from this auto shop? Are buyers being stupid? People should avoid them as plague! Before I buy something I always check seller's feedback. If information shows negative publicity I won't bother with w@nkers as I don't want to deal with dishonest and shady people.

    Wow, you had a Bond car. :cool: Having those safety buttons on cars sold in SA, is this common because of the violence in the country? Safety systems were they sold at the dealership or from a specialists security company?

    What do you recommend? Continental SportContact 6 or Michelin PilotSport4?
