  3. Sharjah industrial area is full of them, but I don't think you'll get what you're looking for. You need to check with scrap yards dealing with Pajero parts. Gaurav bhai can help you with the best scrappies for Pajero.
  4. I thought the German rules were very strict with mods that all their mods to be certified by TUV or something.
  5. You can try cheaper second hand tires from the second-hand tire market in Sharjah and get a feel before investing in more expensive options. Metal bumpers and winch will weigh your car down from front end. I too was thinking about putting in a custom box but it too will weigh extra plus will restrict you for space for other things. I opted for a web tie down and keeps everything securely in place. Go for the supercharge.
  6. @desertdude I've never let these things bog me down either. Just being very honest to the cost of owning my cars. Coming to think about it I missed out on my Japan imported Mitsubishi Eclipse 1991 GSR4 turbo tuned by AMG. I bought it at AED 13500, only a one time clutch plate, pressure plate and thrust bearing replacement, used it for 3 years and sold for AED 5k. Total cost for 3 years was about AED 10k. But it was the most enjoyable drive once the turbo kicked in.
  7. Sorry, I thought you were replying to me. My bad.
  8. I am from Karachi Pakistan. 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 PKR 117 per litre (2.75 AED) for petrol. Diesel is PKR 125 (2.80) per litre. The premium petrol in Karachi is Octane 93 and not Octane 95 like UAE.
  9. I will admit it does look eye catching. Also this electric vehicle is catching up on me, but the technology with the batteries and charging is still a long way to go.
  10. Which one is Bengali, Marty or Moog?
  11. I bought the Disco for AED 7500. Had to change the engine for about AED 4500 and gear for AED 900 besides having to change the engine and gear mounts for about AED 250 a couple of times and replaced all the seals twice before giving up on all the leaks. Besides that had to change the fuel tank once and fuel pump. Overall over 5 years I had it I spent about AED 15 k and got back only AED 4500 when I sold it. So cost me over 10500 over a 5 year ownership. Compared to the Civic where I spent AED 23075 and sold for 15k so cost me AED 8075 over 5 years. I bought the Pathy for AED 10k spent AED 4k recently for engine, gear is already a question mark now which should cost me another AED 2k and other bushing and stuff where I've spent over AED 8k including AC rebuild cost. So already way over AED 20k spent and haven't tried selling it yet. But I doubt I'll be able to sell it anywhere close to AED 20k to beat the Civic of the old.
  12. These are all pics near my house. One side is sea and the other side is rain water where cars are drowning.
  13. My first car was my cheapest. Honda Civic 1991 DX. Bought it in 1994 at AED23000, besides normal wear and tear like brakes and oil and filter change, just had to replace the fuel pump. This costed me AED 75 as I did it myself, just had to buy the part. After 4 years sold it at AED 15000 which I think was a fair deal.
