Recently a few of us got down to discussing business morals etc.
I would think at first somebody simply sold goods he had to somebody who needed them.
Over time this changed to procuring goods for those who need them i.e. keeping stock
Of course the Business person followed the market and started stocking goods he thought his potential customers might need.
In the end this Businessman either had excessive stock or a aggressive advertising company and then started generating a need for these items ;)
We are now at the point where a lot of Businesses sell goods to a customer that the consumer does not really need L
Simply paging through the advertisers in a 4X4 magazine would prove this point.
If I go camping, I take a big fridge with refreshments & a rugstrang or 2 + Cheese, bread, biltong etc.
I have a box with eating utensils, Torch, 1’st aid a sleeping bag and spare fuel + water.
No tent, awnings, water purifiers, Toilets, 3 GPS + flares.
In other words I take the bare necessities and forget about the frilletjies & fralletjies
I also do not have DSTV at home + 101 other toys that are never used.
Why am I telling you this ? Because my outlook on life is basic: If you have good food, drink & friends, what more do you need ?
I started off building performance engines, as like any young man= I liked power- lot’s of it J
Then I moved to Nam in 93 and carried on driving my faithful 82 Hilux 4X4. It was reliable but no power, so in went a Buick 3.8. The suspension was solid but SOLID, so I imported a soft-ride suspension.
Then I realised that more traction was needed, so I imported diff locks. The list goes on…
Others had the same needs as myself, so I provided J
Today I will sell you what I would want.
No Bling- just solid, working engineering solutions.
If your cruiser 4.5 EFi is too thirsty, I can fix that because my present 4.5 made me pale at the pumps.
I might not sell you what you want, if I know it will not satisfy you ! Then I will refer you to somebody who will sell you this part & then you take out your disappointment on them ;)
Dastek Power completely revised the blank looms and plug and play system pricing. The prices have been substantially lowered making it a much more affordable option now.
The sales of blank looms need to be extended for the Unichip outlets to offer the client the choice to hardwire or not, irrespective of the vehicle being in or out of warranty. This is of course only if the client wants it and is made aware of the option not to cut the vehicles wiring harness in any way.
We are now offering the following options including vat:
Wired in Uni-Q, including Dynotuning & “3 months money back Guarantee, if not satisfied” N$ 3000.00 up
Plug ‘n play which is the same Uni-Q as above but pre programmed not hard-wired, but rather with a harness that can be removed & refitted at will, but not fine-tuned: N$ 4900.00 - Normal Power plug, N$ 5900.00 - Extender Power plug
The loose wiring harness to suit the Uni-Q above will cost N$ 2450

We are now also showing uncorrected Rear wheel power figures from certain vehicles tuned on our Dyno.
This is an aid to let you estimate how much power you might gain from having your vehicle tuned by us.
I am busy writing an article on what to expect to gain by doing a certain modification on your vehicle.
I would appreciate you telling me, what still needs to be changed there J
I hope this newsletter is giving you a comprehensive update on what is changing here ?
