I'm from Cape Town... arguably the most beautiful city in Africa and just to dispell any myths South Africa doesn't have lions walking in the streets. It looks like any other city in the world and the only time I ever saw an elephant or a lion was at the circus when I was small...

There are lots of lovely BMW's here, however it seems to me that BMW's are as popular among the racers and modders here. Honda and Toyota seem to rule that area and BMW drivers are mostly older people or those few young people with good taste.

I bought my E36 a while ago and was thinking of getting something else when
it gave some trouble, but I honestly can't find a better car on the market except for a new BMW which is out of my price range right now.

We get bent over here in terms of car prices. I haven't seen a real E36 following or even an E46 following. There is a very strong status mindset here, where you just have to have new car or your are the biggest loser on the planet. For that reason car dealers often insult my E36 saying it a crap old car and why do I want to keep it etc etc. Maybe the same thing happens in the US but I got a feeling its way worse here. I personally love this car and want to keep it forever or at trade it in for a 328 convertable E36.

To give you an idea of how we get milked in South Africa... we pay for "bandwidth" on ADSL to the tune of $10-$15 per gig of traffic, uploading or downloading. So many companies limit their internet usage to staff because of this and people often get into trouble for using up too much bandwidth and some get arrested for stealing ISP accounts. We even have prepaid broadband vouchers where you can buy a 1 gig account for $11. Is that crazy or what ... enough third world ranting...

Has anybody been to South Africa or know anyone here?
