You can claim the car value over 5 years, but you would need to be able to prove to SARS the apportionment of personal vs business mileage.

Yes you can, that would also need to be apportioned on the basis of business vs total mileage.

Should I show the right off under depreciation source code 4027 or under travel expenses source code 4015?

The car would be under the depreciation and the other travel expenses under the travel code.
