  1. I hear what you’re saying but my point is that it’s crazy how better cars can be pushed aside because of fanboism (new word copyrighted) over lesser cars because internet cool y0
  2. My uncle had a 16v GTi. Very cool car, had the Pirelli P slot wheels. But it could barely keep up with my Mk5 XR3i. The golf is still worth 3 times what the Escort is worth now. Strange times.
  3. What does it say in the owners handbook?
  4. Speak to Yahya in top leather 0506555429. I have used him many times and his work has always been perfect. Even if it costs more. I would avoid al khaskha. I used them once for a classic Mercedes interior. They lost half the parts. It took me 4 trips to Sharjah to try to get the stuff back and I had to search the shop myself to find them. In the end I didn’t even get everything and had to order new parts from Germany.
  5. Explain this 6 wheel thing to me please. What I’m thinking is that even if the rear axle isn’t powered, surely it increases floatation? Ie, even if you spin the middle axle, the rear axle will still be on top of the terrain so you should sink in?
  6. Metro 6R4. Mid engined NA V6. 253 bhp, up to 410 bhp depending on version. 5 speed manual, permanent 4wd with front and rear LSD. Proper supercar destroyer https://youtu.be/bwvDFvLiIqQ Original 6r4 version
  7. We’re always told never meet your heroes or you’ll be disappointed. This applies to cars also. There are cars we’ve all dreamed of driving or owning, how did it go when you met your hero? For me it has to be the Escort Cosworth. I always had the poster of this on my wall as a kid. In my eyes it was the car that god would drive. My cousin bought one and I got a chance to drive it. Super disappointed. I was expecting supercar performance but in reality it was a hot hatch with a cool spoiler. I still love how they look but I would never want to own one now.
  8. For some strange unknown reason, the head sheikh of UAE has put you in charge of all car, traffic and transport related matters, on the condition you change 3 things with immediate effect. What would you change and why?
  9. If you don’t care how it looks you can stick it with bison kit or spray adhesive. The advantage of using new fabric is that it’s clean. When you reuse old fabric it’s impossible to clean the old residue off so you will end up with little lumps and bumps where it was stuck.
  10. It’s not the puddles I worry about, it’s what’s under them. You could be driving nicely along in a 2-3 inch puddle and fall into a big pothole and never see it.
  11. Car testing in Germany is insanely strict. They even go as far to test the moisture content in the brake fluid.
  12. How do fuel prices compare in your home country versus UAE? I am North Ireland Current UAE price is Petrol 2.12 per litre Diesel 2.38 per litre This is an average. Sources may vary In my place we are paying £1.24 per litre (5.95 AED) for petrol. Diesel is £1.30 (6.23) We are taxed twice in our fuel. First they add 60% fuel tax, then they add 20% VAT. People ask why Europeans love small engine cars?
  13. Ford have filed a patent for this windscreen design https://www.autoweek.com/news/future-cars/a30360986/ford-shows-a-wild-massive-mustang-windshield-in-patent-drawings/ 🤮
