  1. Hi @girix As per my knowledge there are several good life insurance companies out here, you will have to check the one that suits you best with the plan that suits you the best. Alico is a American based and is one of the oldest and reliable, Alliance Insurance is another good company I know of, AXA, RSA, Metlife. Some of the other companies are based in Pakistan and India which can help you even if you are not based in UAE anymore
  2. Welcome Mujtaba your name is added to the list. Looking forward to seeing you next week.
  3. Since there has been a lot of buzz and so many people want to learn the art of driving in the sands, I am posting this absolute newbie desert drive. When : 27 January 2017 at 7:30 am Where : Adnoc Petrol station on Maliha/Kalba road. GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/7LJBiXhtjCK2 Level of drive: Absolute Newbie. Plan: Drive followed by breakfast. What to bring along: Breakfast, water, liquids, smiles and stories. Approximate finish time : 11 AM Note : Drive level can be changed if we have no beginners in the desert to suit the level of the convoy. List of participants: Rahimdad Gaurav Karamullah Mujtaba
  4. @ameen bhai you are most welcome to bring your Tiida to the meeting point and join one of us for the ride, we will drop you back to your car on return.
  5. I have had a Ford Explorer on one of my trips and it went everywhere with us with just one small stuck and with a little pull he was out in no time. So yes a Ford Explorer is a capable off-roader for the type of terrain we will be taking on. I will make sure to start it on an easy track just to give you a feel of the sand. As your comfort level increases I can take you through some small to medium dunes so that you can enjoy your ride and discover more about your ride and improve your skills. Looking forward to seeing you @wingnut
  6. Understood @Barry, I have a lot to learn from you guys.
  7. It would be our greatest pleasure @manums Karamullah has also aquired a Parrot drone and would like to test it out on this drive, so Go Pro Hero and Parrot Drone footage combined, excited to see the results. I bet its gonna be amazing.
  8. I would recommend he test drive both and than decide which one he feels is the better bet. Once he has pent his huge budget, he will never get back the value he has paid and it will be too late to change his mind. I am sure Al Naboodah will see his dilemma, interest in the purchase and assist him with test driving both models before he decides which one he wants to go for.
  9. @manums Thank you for your kind words, it was fun having your team on board and we all thoroughly enjoyed your company. @Gaurav Thank you for adding to the requirements of recovery points. Looking forward to an amazing morning out with my brothers.

  11. @aatish Now that the air has been cleared, it does feel nice to be removed from the asshole list of defame. Hahahhahahah
  12. @Atif As explained earlier it all depend son the level of drive you are interested in, I would suggest a metal plate, bolt on application for the rear bumper also, as it is hollow and like Pajero can be bent by dragging sand in the back. Normally if you increase the tire size it causes rubbing issues as the factory fitted tires are the biggest size you can get without rubbing issues, always better to get a 2 inch lift, than you can enjoy bigger tires. Second thing about the increase in fuel consumption is only if you get heavier tires, if you are just changing the tires to a slightly bigger size the change in fuel consumption should be a minimum. Regarding airbags, the real danger is if you have side airbags which are programmed in such a way that if you are doing a 45 degree side slopping and if you perform a criss cross, that is slide to the other side of the dune doing a 45 degree slop in the opposite direction, than the car computer tells it there is a tilt of 90 degree which means the car has rolled over to its side, this deploys the airbags. If you have not done extreme off-roading than you have not been through this manoeuvre. However if your interest grows it is at least better to locate where the air bag fuse is and remove it for the advance drive. For ridge cutting or criss crossing see below video at 50 seconds onward to understand better.
  13. @aatish Need to be more patient, i am one of the biggest assholes you flash. For your information I am close to 100 KPH and not 80 KPH, and the track you cal is for the fastest lane is actually an overtaking lane. When you flash me, I do indicate that I am overtaking and than change the lane as soon as I have completed my overtaking manoeuvre and once I have made sure it is safe to do so. My wish is not to block you when i know you need to reach yesterday, but I don't want to be stuck at 80 KPH behind someone driving in the second lane and I do not wish to overtake from the right. Your truely BIGGEST ASHOLE.
  14. Thanks @ethan, that is very helpful and a great question by @manums. Just to be very clear, RTA in Dubai might allow air filters and mild exhaust, but come to Sharjah and if the Sharjah Police feels that there are any mods thay would stop you and ask you to lift your hood for inspection. This is commonly seen on the Maliha/Kalba road. Some of the cars are stopped by default, Jeep Wranglers and Nissan Patrol are common to be stopped by Sharjah Police. If they find any modification you better hope and pray that they are in a good mood and leave you with a warning to change only. If they are not in such a good mood, or you piss them off the car can be confiscated for a month and pay heavy fines to get your vehicle back.
