What is the Price for the mid-range petrol with CVT in SA?
Here it goes for the equivalent of R200k

The  beauty of not having to deal with SA taxes!

We don't get the mid or low range - only full spec out here - CVT = 339k

Nice to see the light coloured upholstery and two tone dash - all black out here.

Thanks Paul.
I'll think the full spec CVT is about R50k more all in, so still quite good value!
;D

Multi Franchising - that's basically what some of us are having to do to keep going these days.

Durban is now Subaru, Alfa/Fiat and Chrysler Jeep. I know that East London is a MF as well - if one model isn't selling well, there's another to keep the business going.

Our greedy Government how can I say... Rapes us on taxes when we bring in a car.

To give you an example, over seas like the US the same car can go for almost 100K less.

The tax on an STI is about 170K to the Government. If we had a most reasonable Government we would sell more cars...

And yes as Paul said, we only bring in hi spec for most of our cars, only Fozz we bring in the lower specced models.

Things move a little bit slower this side.
But there seem to be light at the end of the tunnel.

This is mine!!
