You know how they "chrome" plastic with a thin layer of metal, those handles are the same, they are just satin finished instead of polished.

EDIT: If I remember correctly the last price I had on the handles was roundabout R1500.

So on this new Yaris, have Toyota fixed the problem where the car runs out of petrol on your way to a ice cream parlor?

It's a 2.2 i-CTDi 5 door, 2008 model (diesel)

I'm still 'learning' how to drive a diesel so as to get at least close to the specc'ed fuel consumption figures.
I must say that having the fuel consumption displayed in real time on the dash has done wonders for my heavy right foot :oops:
Syko, I know she is still new to you, but how's the maintenance prices on these babies?

PS. Gratz, she looks awesome!

I don't normally like silver or white cars, but Syko and Ryan - those look beautiful.

I find that silver cars are easy to keep clean, and it is a colour that appears to fit all cars....it also does not really fade

I normally find silver noncommital. It is common (in that many cars are silver). But that really does look good.

Man, that looks familiar. I used to work on Swaziland in the plantations, etc.

Nice bike, but you might want to obscure your licence plate? :)

It's actually about a 20 minute walk away from my house, up in the western side of Pietermaritzburg xD

Also, done. Numberplate censored.

So this car has been given to the previously disadvantaged (well, depending on where the stripped parts were shipped to) against my will on the 5th of December last year. So I got another VW. Here she is:

Quote good. Very well built, better than the 9n3 (previous spec) Some say it's overpriced, but it's a really well built car for the price you pay. It's solid.

Yes. Quite and economical.

If money permits, yes. But at the moment I'm strapped for cash.

I did put in the VW RNS510 GPS unit. Pretty awesome unit.
Would like to get the 9wZ bluetooth module
Maybe later some software. But will wait and see how it goes.

Speaking of rides, I attended the VWCSA dyno day this Sunday past and had my 2.2 diesel Civic on the rollers, made 144whp and 349Nm out of a car that should be making 138bhp and 340Nm, so well pleased I am :D
