    • This is an old thread, but seems Georges is still up to his old tricks.  I walked into this guy like a right mug, lost 7,500dhs to him, and almost lost my car too.  See my post on this other thread. Astonishing that he still continues almost four years later, same name, same number.  I guess while gullible knob-ends like me continue roaming for a cheap service, he'll continue to prosper.

    • Hi Danny and all, Thanks for the link to the other thread.  I hadn't found that one. I spent the last week giving this guy the benefit of the doubt, as the other thread seemed to indicate some ability with cars, despite offering crap customer service, and he was a very good talker for sure.  I guess i just wanted to believe he was for real.  I've made several phone calls to him which led to more assurances that the car was almost done, almost, almost... etc.   However, I got itchy today and decided to get up to Al Qusais from Abu Dhabi, and by some chance, found my S8 dumped by the side of the road on 14th street, clearly having had no work whatsoever.  Plates were still on, registration card still inside, air suspension fully deflated, and with a good month's covering of dust.  Fresh battery meant I could still start it, so I quickly got it on recovery and back to Abu Dhabi, nobody seemed to notice or care  Scanned the memory with VCDS to confirm he'd done nothing except just dump the car. However, I found time to call Georges whilst standing next to the deflated baby, and confirm that he had actually managed to complete all the work as promised, bar the outstanding flange seal:  Yes, Yes, sir, work all done, it'll be back with you tonight, latest Saturday.  I didn't mention I'd found the car, or the state it was in. I had to look at the car again, just to believe I had actually been thoroughly done over. I can understand him running off the money (7,500AED), but why do these thieves get off on dumping the cars?  And how has this guy got away with it for so long?  The other thread has the same name and phone number going back to 2013. Not sure if mods will allow but it seems this guy goes by the name of Georges Tachajian, there are 7 or so facebook profiles with common photos from his whatsapp numbers.  The name of the guy who I wired money to via Al Ansari was Ziad Salloum.  Numbers used during the communications were 050 151 6757, 055 897 0011, 055 125 0025.  Whatsapp pic is attached if mods allow.  Right now he has 31 ads on dubizzle related to Merc, Audi, BMW, Range Rover and Porsche mods, service and parts.   I lost the money, i know, through my own stupidity.  This guy is a very good liar - he had equipment to scan for fault codes and tell me he was fixing the issues.  It was difficult not to believe him, I'd seen the faults in the memory myself, and hadn't mentioned all of them to him. Thanks for the heads up again.  Also thanks to the guy on the other thread; the address Doha Road, Street 4B, put me quite close to where the car was.  I'm just happy to have the car back - it ain't worth much but it ain't his car!  I will try reporting this to police again.  No answer on 901 today, and I tried calling Al Qusais police station but couldn't communicate with the girls answering the phones.

    • As Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, never be afraid to fail. If people stopped developing technology if they failed in their first few attempts, we would probably still be living in the stone age. I'm on the fence on this whole thing. Self driving cars could be useful, who wants to drive and hour to and from work in bumper to bumper traffic. You could let the car drive itself home and you relax with a movie or catch some Zzzzs, but on other occasions when out having fun, I would want to drive myself. So it does have its uses. I don't understand what's the point of driverless races other than to refine said technology. Hoe many times has one just sat back on his PlayStation and watched an entire race with all cars being controlled by the console. Because this is what this would be like just for real.
