Prior to acquiring car insurance has anyone here had to deal with ESMA (Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology)?
Today I was getting a quote from one of the well known insurance providers in Dubai, the person asked the usual questions about year, make, model, etc, and then asked if the car had been modified. Well it seems that suspension mods are something this company is concerned about and explained that in order to get insurance I would have to get authorization from ESMA for the mods ... 🙄
I will appreciate your comments, especially if you've gone through something similar.
Thanks in advance to all.
Every offroader who is regularly driving offroad and involved in recovery by pulling or tugging should inspect there tow points and tow hook regularly.
At least once every month or after every extreme recovery to make sure they are safe to use.
Thanks to @Barry for wonderful contact of Mathias in Car Pro garage - a seasoned welder to take up this job during Eid holidays and doing a wonderful work. Sadly Car Pro garage is closing or closed down, so if any of you need quick welding job from expert welder you can contact Mathias on 052 926 6714. And he is very reasonable in pricing. He charged me 200 Dhs for all 3 joints ARC welding.
I am planning to buy an Armada (2012 or 2013 model) as my daily driver + the weekend offroad vehicle with the Carnity family.
Do notice a lot of feedback in various discussions on its sheer size and weight but does it feel much different than a LC200?
Please also advise on the aspects I need to look out for while making the purchase.
Look forward to your valuable inputs.
Hi Carnity Family,
Though I am very new to off-roading and have just started by AMAZING drives with this family, I was just wondering if it is mandatory to install skid plates on our LC 200 GXR v6 model.
In my very limited and newbie knowledge, LC seem to have some covers underneath but I seek the professional expertise and knowledge of the Carnity family to advise.
Look forward to hear from you!
Am eager to know how to modify my car to minimise damage possibilities, and yet keep the elegant look that suits the city
Hi @Lorenzo Candelpergher I noticed that you have the new model 2020 and it looks awesome. Is it a t1? Or did you modify the bumper and added a skid? It would be amazing if you can share some advises
