BMW 2 Series Active Tourer Fits Whatever You Have In Mind

Recently I had the opportunity to join SMG Cape Town at their launch day of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, which made its South African debut on the 24th January 2015.

This five-seater MPV is the latest addition to the BMW product offering aimed at young, active people who need space for their daily activities and lifestyle and competes directly with the likes of Mercedes-Benz’ B-Class. The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a first for BMW as it also has BMW’s first-ever front-wheel drive system, the first of what could be a possible a new line-up of BMW front-wheel drive cars. A 2 Series Active Tourer all-wheel-drive option should be coming later.

Get a Dryver… From SPAR

Last week I wrote an article about the “Drive-Dry” campaign and promoting the “drive dry” attitude amongst friends, family and fellow countrymen of South Africa. After writing the article, I was contacted about a new app from SPAR, called “Dryver” and thought you might like to know a bit more…

Dryver – The Social Media Network that Gets You Home Safely

As you may know, TOPS at SPAR have more that 500 stores across Southern Africa and are known for their edgy marketing and advertising campaigns. This led them to launching, a SA first, social network incorporated and innovative new app aimed at people who are out and over the legal drinking limit, but don’t want to drink and drive.

I Drive Dry, Why Can’t You?

Maybe you’ve heard about this… Maybe you haven’t. But death is no joke, especially when it can be prevented or avoided by just having some sense of responsibility.

I’m saying that we have all heard stories about things that happened to people while driving under the influence… Maybe you’ve nearly ended up in a situation like that, or been in that situation yourself?

What I’m getting at is the awareness, and the spreading of the awareness to help at least just one person have that ligh...
