MZANSI'S car customising scene has exploded over the past couple of years.

Previously, we used to se certain car builds only on television or international magazines.

However, these days car guys and end enthusiasts have take it upon themselves to add their own touch the cars they own.

A perfect example is Thando Msomi, who so happens to own one of Mzansi's iconic car, the Volkswagen Golf MK1.

Thando is so fond of his Golf MK1, he gave it the pet name "Nayi Lenja" loosely translated, it means "here's the dog".

During an interview with CAR'lture's Tela Rikhotso, Thando explained step by step the modifications he has done to his car.


  • He fitted a banana branch exhaust system to the 1.4 carburettor engine.
  • He added a free flow system
  • He fitted GTI resistors
  • To top the cake - he fitted Mercedes Benz AMG pipes to make Nayi Lenja be heard miles away.

Nayi Lenja, is blue in colour with blakes that make it shine and be seen for the beauty that it is and it is rolling on 3SDM Twist rims fitted with stretched tyres for the perfect fitment.
