  1. With present car market condition, I know all is too bad and car selling for cheap but i am want know how to find a fair value at first and then drop further to deal with bad market crisis. In us there is kbb - kelly blue book so if there is anything similar to that existing in dubai or uae car market? I am tired of seeing insurance inflated car value and used car dealers super deflated car values, there should be something in between to tell the owner of real fair value after certain kms and year of use.
  2. Thanks Rahimdad, it's not available in UAE, any other good option, please help barry is for a car not home
  3. can any one suggest me some brand and model for car vacuum cleaner that is very powerful and durable too. I got one which was powerful but it died after 3 tries, then got kenwood one and its not powerful enough.
  4. Looking from inside stripped off interior and join with tapes over the gear panel seems like it's made for such crash as to test on real road causality and driver impact in serious crashes.
  5. No need to bitch on everything and twist the words. I mentioned to "grow up" to you specifically for some other reason (Marketing crap) and not for saving the planet. Read again. Do you work for law firm or something....?
  6. I am from Mars, but your thinking of saving planet Earth need more rational approach than blaming the companies for marketing their products. If that ever has to happen, then companies doing more harm to health by selling junk food, soda, cigarettes, alcohol would be banned and not the car companies. Marketing is existing since 1800 and it's the only way to sell their product by persuasive manner. Common wake up, you are just 200 years late to realize that it's wrong.
  7. Are you guys serious to rant on people choice and marketing team responsible for screwing the planet. Grow up guys. Nobody is putting gun on customers mind and forcing them to buy trucks or tiida. Pharmacy sells rat poison too, do you go and buy it and commit suicide and then blame pharmacy.....?
  8. As so many used car dealers are existing in Dubai, I want to know what is a reputation of Al Futtaim Automall here in Dubai? Some says it's good and other says they are too expensive, what is the real take from you guys based on your experience from the past?
  9. I need to change my car this year and i am planning to stick to Lexus once again, as I am so happy with my current Lexus. Wondering if anyone here has a NX and please share your ownership experience (Joy/regrets) to help me make up my mind. Thanks.
  10. This is interesting topic I printed and saved in my car dashboard. My car was yesterday little bit drowned and in evening it started perfectly fine when was logged water dispersed. Water must have touched the chassis and little bit under-body, do I need to redo the rust proofing or it's ok....?
  11. This seems preparing the plan to start charging for car registration and renewal based on rating and poor cars will pay more than efficient cars, that's why the gap is so less in 5 ratings. Make more money, as we need more roads and bridges in future.
  12. Why Mini makes so cute cars, i hate them and I love them, any idea on the price here in UAE....?
  13. I went once in that same place for other brand, and it looks they dont like to sell to end user and they just like to export used spare parts to rest of the world except UAE. I tried aflatoon, lucky (something) and A to Z three times and all turn sour.
  14. Though my car is very well maintained and few years old, but being a fabric seats due to overtime wear and tear they look dirty, tired and aged. I have some car interior detailing videos and wondering what is the basic first step to start doing the detail cleaning. I am not up for workshop who do this job as my car is not as serious for those job at the meoment nor I have a time to leave the car for few days. Appreciate if someone can advice the basic first level cleaning with locally available liquids / chemical. Thanks.
  15. Thanks treks, Please find my answers below: Does the engine crank at normal speed? YesDo you see any warning lights on the dashboard when it won't start? NoDid you replace the battery recently? No, 10-12 months backDo you have a smart key, and when last did you replace the battery in the key? Yes, and battery changed long ago, but if its weak it fails completely and dont behave like this.Does the problem only happen when the car was parked in the sun? No, it's always under shade.Does the car run normally once it does start? YesDoes it run normally all of the time? YesDoes the idling fluctuate, or does it idle unevenly? NoHas the fuel consumption changed at all- does it now use more fuel than before? Don't know exactly but its more or less same as beforeDoes it take three or four attempts to start it when it won't start, and do you smell fuel when it does not want to start? Yes 3-4 cranking, but no smell.How long do you crank the engine for when you try to start it? Only once, but when it delays it cranks for 4-5 times in one go before starting. Otherwise half crank it starts daily.
