Haha I know, I lived in Zim for a good few years as well as SA, spent most of my time in Cape town or visiting family in Nelspruit, to be honest, actively avoided Joburg as much as i could.sachak wrote: ↑Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:30 amhahahaha That is a funny question I wont lie. You know I don't live in the jungle right? I live in South Africa. My car is parked in a lock up garage everyday in a secure complex. and at work its parked at the office in the parking lot situated inside the building.Marekdawg wrote: ↑Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:16 pmI thought you may have already checked having seen your other thread. Another thought from my own experience in Harare, is your car safe from the lovely chaps who like to come along and siphon your fuel at night? Again doubtful but just another thought.
I actually have less hassles with my car here in South Africa than what I did when I lived in the UK.
When I lived in the UK my car got broken into a few times. My door locks got destroyed, I came out to a car with broken windows sometimes. Those chavs are another story, very menacing to society and extremely destructive. I remember walking down the street on my way to work the one morning and every single car parked on the side of the road had a smashed windscreen!
We don't have that issue here in South Africa because most places have lock up garages and if not then its because its in a safe complex with car ports with no way for anyone to come into the complex. Even if you goto a shopping center you get nice underground parking to park in. No one parks on the side of the road in the sun all day here like what I had to do when I stayed in the UK.
Look there are places in SA where you have to park on the side of the road for an hour or two but most places you goto have big parking spaces that are usually underground or under cover and they are very safe.
Also I don't live in Harare. I live in Sandton in Johannesburg.
Only reason I asked is mine was in a garage inside our locked property with electric fence etc. but after a couple of confusing weeks I found the issue...
But glad the fuel issue seems to have gotten better!
