    Africa's calling me...

    Driving a shed to Africa.

    There are many rallys out there which invlove a £100 car/shed driven 2000 miles to some far off country. Has anyone done it? Does anyone fancy doing it? I really want to do one one day in a 124 estate. Maybe we could have a forum sponsored car?

    South Africa - Aftermarket Mods / Addons

    Anyone know of decent (hard to find in SA) aftermarket part sellers in South Africa? Particularly Gauteng Area? Now that the comand is available for the C class I am thinking of adding it.
