From the DRIVER’S SEAT

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - CONTENTS - I’m keen to hear your sug­ges­tions and com­ments; please drop me a line at ed­i­tor@ landy­mag.co.za

My brother is a BMW man. He’s driven loads of them over the years and has never had any ma­jor prob­lems to speak of. With each new BMW he has dili­gently pur­chased a top- up on his motorplan to match the lenght of the fi­nance term. Ex­cept with his cur­rent car. His think­ing was that he paid R18 000 for the ser­vice plan on his last car and it only needed a sin­gle oil ser­vice dur­ing the pe­riod un­der cover. He didn’t buy the top- up this time around; now the clutch on the car is shot and he is left to pay the bill out of pocket. In this is­sue, we un­pack the var­i­ous ex­tended war­ranty prod­ucts avail­able to Landy own­ers and also chat to a few re­pair shops about the costs in­volved should a me­chan­i­cal catas­tro­phe strike. We leave you to de­cide if there is value in the cover. Also in this is­sue we tell the story of a spe­cial 21st birth­day celebration in Botswana, How Miems ( even­tu­ally) found her Landy; and how your Land Rover AFRICA mag­a­zine staffers got on in the Gabriel Beast Night Chal­lenge. We also popped in to the KZN Landy fes­ti­val held at the Es­ton Coun­try Club and fea­ture some in­ter­est­ing mods and re­builds. So pour your­self a cup of cof­fee (or some­thing a lit­tle stonger) and set­tle down to en­joy your fa­vorite Land Rover read. We hope you en­joy this mag­a­zine as much and we en­joy pro­duc­ing it for you each month.

All the best

Andy Mark and LRA mag­a­zine team
