I have one, hehe. A 2.6 6-cylinder, with custom faux-leather interior and an AMG kit. According to specs, a 2.6 is hardly more thirsty than a 2.3 . Anything less than a 2.6 is slug-slow, except for the "2.3-16", which is faster than the 2.6. Mind you, the 2.3-16, not the standard 2.3. It's...

Come on, dude. A small car can be managed if you just stay out of the fast lane. Bikes, well, those courier guys are roadkill. :twisted:

I have a Sony Ericsson P910. It is pretty much a computer, with a qwerty keypad, full PDA functions, optional GPS, Playstation-level games and the ability to download DVD movies into it.

Overshadowed by the cordless-phone-looking Nokia Communicator.

Rent for the first three months (or longer). You get a replacement if it breaks down or you crash it. You can't buy until you get residency visa anyway. Then buy a good car either new or still with manufacturers warranty. Get a loan rather than pay cash for a cheap POS. Or keep renting for 2 years ...

Re: Any Arabs or Locals?

So are there are any Arabs or Locals on Dubai Forums. I noticed many who have the Lebanese flag as an avatar, but wasnt sure if it was because of the war going on or if they are, in fact, Lebanese. I myself am Palestinian/Lebanese on my fathers side and Emirate/Iranian (3eemi) on my mums side.... W...

This is not America, so you will get one price whoever you are. A convertible GT goes for Dhs 145,000 from Al Tayer. What you get for that much, besides a V8, I didn't bother asking. Insurance is a whole other story. As for a repaint, you can get it for as low as Dhs 1500 or as high as Dhs 4000, an...

The X-Trail and the Murano both suck off road. If I went for either, Murano easily. Both drive like cars, but I seriously think the X-Trail should be taken into the desert and shot. Of course, the Murano is way more expensive than the X, and the X is painfully popular.

You can't compare the FX35/45 against an X5 - no comparison. FX35/45 are just the "luxury" versions of the murano. No extra grunt, and IMO the ride was harsher than a normal Murano - could be the bigger wheels with lower profile tyres. That said, the noise (lack there of) on cruise at 120...
