South African Security System
« on: July 20, 2020, 05:13:01 PM »
Now I have told this story to a few fellow Alfa owners (and they rarely truly believed me), of how car jacking became so bad in South Africa, that someone developed a Flame Thrower Anti Car Jacking system for BMWs sold there.

Well here you go -

Now, the best part was of course was when the South African Minister for Tourism saw this on the 6.00pm news!!!

Here, on national television, was a story telling the worlds tourists that if you come to South Africa, the crime is so bad, you need to fit Flammenwerfer to your car just to drive around safely. . . .  :o

Apparently he had an utter fit and had this guy and BMWs South African CEO in front of his desk the next morning for a discussion that could never be reprinted here, or anywhere else for that matter.
