Hamburg Taxis
20. Sep 2011 at 20:17
 
Spent a couple of days in Hamburg - chatting to taxi driver - he buys his mercedes estates with 400,000km on clock and runs them to 600,000++ and still finds a market to sell on.

Did not think mileages would be so high - once saw a Volvo with 300k on clock in the Algarve but that was previous highest

Hamburg is a major location for our business.

The unwritten law is "what happens in Hamburg ..stays in Hamburg!" Smiley
