That's not lekker! You might have to go the legal route but before you do you might want to try "Hello Peter" and send them both the link. :think:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.


Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Few years back I took Liberty Life to the Ombudsman - for misrepresentation ...

Took about 18 months - but in the end Liberty had to pay out

would like to know the realistic time line for the motoring sector ombudsman.
