SEAT Sport Club and Fueltopia Toy Run

SEAT Sport Owners Club and Fueltopia welcomed us and our overloaded (with toys and dogfood making the guys with dropped suspension groan) to their annual toy run on the 11 December.

About Us

About AutoModified
How did the idea of AutoModified come about?
AutoModified started off as a hobby website in 2008. In 2009 the website was changed up and the directory was formed. The reason for including the directory was that being a Car enthusiast from Cape Town, I realised that there are so many garages and audio shops scattered around cape town that have absolutely no online exposer. With that in mind the directory came into play.
