  5. 1. There was an article a couple of months ago that kids below the age of 12 don't need to take the COVID test to enter Abu Dhabi. But the rules might have changed so I am not sure. 2. We are all doing drives because there are no symptoms, but in case the test is positive and you are asymptomatic I presume you will most probably have to be in quarantine in Dubai. That's why they say sometimes ignorance is bliss. 😁
  6. The wrong sized battery was installed by the previous owner. I don't think it was due to wrong size battery as else I would have noticed this problem in the first 6 months of ownership. It more is a case of a bad battery.
  7. UPDATE #2 After the last update in June, the car started fine on first attempts for a month or so. After that it would take always 3-4 attempts to start the car. Tried it with the duplicate key but to no avail, the problem still persisted. A few days ago, my battery died and I got it replaced. At the same time it was noticed that the battery was not of the right size, so we changed it to a correct sized Amaron Battery. The issue of not starting on the first attempt has completely disappeared. Looks like it was a case of a faulty battery like @Frederic suggested.
  8. Hi Martin, some of the best sands are in your part of town. We are starting off the drives to see how it goes and if successful, we should be starting multiple level drives in Abu Dhabi very soon. So look forward to seeing you very soon. @andy_macdxb I really appreciate and understand your enthusiasm but this would be an Intermediate level drive. We shall be having our regular Fewbie level drives on 2nd October in Dubai and Sharjah as per the announcements on 27th Sept (Sunday). So you can sign up once those drives go live. Furthermore, seeing how smooth the entire COVID19 testing process is for all the drivers, we might plan multiple level drives in Abu Dhabi very soon. The idea behind announcing this drive approx two weeks in advance is, so that the drivers can book the slots for the DPI / PCR test.
  9. Yes, you can do the PCR tests 48 hours in advance. They cost AED 370. The list of centers are provided in this GN article. https://gulfnews.com/living-in-uae/health/all-covid-19-drive-through-test-centres-in-the-uae-and-how-you-can-book-a-test-1.1586776437931
  10. @Piotr Kolodziej thanks for the update and wish you a speedy recovery. @Probir Mukherjee I have added you on to the drive RSVP. See you on Friday. @Anand Nataraj you are waitlist # 1 for the moment.
  11. For those who have already signed up, please post a screen shot of the booking confirmation. The cost of the test is AED 50. Location for the test is provided below on E11. As its early on Friday morning I dont foresee any major rush for doing the test. Test results are provided on the spot, and you will be good to enter. Please carry a screenshot of your booking for the officials. https://goo.gl/maps/rVMUmdc7CEwFJmBWA
