  1. The rules have changed. A sedan or SUV registered in company name can have a tiny. It's only the commercial vehicles like pickups, minivans etc that have the restriction
  2. It's called photochromatic glasses. Never heard the term of electrochromic glasses.
  3. Actually it depends on what parts are being replaced. The labor cost is typically around 1000 for a workshop in Ajman. If you need to replace any other part the cost can go up or down
  4. Hi, If you prefer the convenience of someone coming and fixing the tyres at your home then pitstoparabia is good. They sell genuine tyres. However, if you are looking for the best possible price I suggest to drive to Sharjah at the below location and you find a line of shops where you can get a very good deal if you negotiate. On an average I have found a difference of nearly AED 40 - 50 per tyre between pitstoparabia and the Sharjah shops. https://goo.gl/maps/jLKV2kXTdc2do15G7 Do check the manufacturing date of the tyre and try to get it as recent as possible. If you drive a lot like approx 50,000 km in a year, you can look at getting about an unused tyre manufactured about a year ago. They give these tyres at prices sometimes 20% cheaper than a newly manufactured tyre.
  5. Trip Report - Breaking from the usual tradition of having night drives in summer we decided that to do a Sweihan drive, one must do it in daylight. But with the limited window of good weather in day light it was decided to have an early morning drive starting with the break of sunlight. So we all met on time at 4:45 am and quickly headed to the deflation point. After an even quicker briefing we headed out with @G.huz as my second lead and @Gaurav in sweep for Section 1 of the drive. If Gaurav had any thoughts of a relatively easier drive in sweep duties, they were quickly smashed by @shadow79 with the first crest right along center of the dune ridge. A few tugs and shoveling helped recover him and he managed to better that with an even more stubborn crest in the exact same position. The winch had to finally come out to recover him from the nasty spot. By then the sun had already started showing glimpses of its full glory, and so we picked up the pace and had to skip some sections of the waypoints that were initially marked. The beauty of Sweihan (especially in summer months) is the absolute virgin dunes one can ever get to see. We reached the end of Section 1 of the drive with the time close to 8:00 am. With the weather getting warmer we headed for the best part of the drive, a huge sand mountain with plenty of room to play and circle around. The view from the top was absolutely breathtaking. After climbing from every possible angle we finally descended and started our exit route in the final hour of the drive. The dunes in this area were fabulous rolling dunes and like Gaurav mentioned, we definitely need to plan a full day drive in this area in the cooler months. As we were playing along the dunes towards the exit we had a couple of overheating issues, but thankfully nothing too bad. We finally settled for our breakfast in the shaded area of what seemed to be an abandoned majlis. A special thanks to @Emmanuel for discovering this area, and also thanks to @Javier M, @shadow79, @G.huz and @Gauravfor all the support to ensure that we started and end the drive on time, especially in this weather.
  6. That's why I have kept an extra one hour and we are starting at 5 am just to be on safe side. 😁
  7. Sweihan dunes also regarded as "Little Liwa" by some offers plenty of opportunities to test our desert driving skills by climbing sideways, ridge riding, ridge cutting and to climb huge dunes to its peak and capture some stunning pictures. As the weather is still hot, its best to start off at the onset of sunrise and have a good 3 hours of fast paced drive through some of the most amazing dunes that UAE has to offer. This drive is for Intermediate & above level When: 16th August 2019, Friday Meeting time: 4:45 AM, Convoy will move sharp at 5:00 AM Meeting GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/4YP93yynZaYBuNHq7 Level of drive: Intermediate & Above What to bring along: Snacks, Quick Breakfast whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Approximate Finish Time: 9:00 AM on 16th August 2019, Friday Please Note, at meeting point there is no petrol station, make sure you fill your tanks on your way at nearest petrol station. If you are coming via the Abu Dhabi truck road the nearest gas station is https://goo.gl/maps/xnrTzaMEpAN3UXWF6. If you are coming via Dubai, the closest and most convenient gas station is https://goo.gl/maps/pG6gsxQRXbSN9qF77 Please RSVP the below calendar event

  9. As I know brake oil is like a paint stripper. Might cause corrosion. So not sure if it can be used
  10. I feel for a manual car to be in 4Lo 1st gear is too much of a stress on the vehicle. For me, 4Lo 3rd gear is equivalent to a 4Hi 1st gear
  11. We actually have another guy who lives on green tea as well.
  12. I seriously doubt that. Possibly the sand is very soft due to no traffic in that area. Give it a bit time till winter and most likely you should have the power to do it. 😁
  13. I actually got it done in Deira Naif area and unfortunately have not had the time to visit the area yet. But in the meanwhile, I was able to isolate the issue to my SD card only and I was reading somewhere (cant recollect where now) that if in the SD card there are more than 99 songs in a single folder this error can happen. So would be segregating the songs in the folders and giving it a try.
