I will park them all together to a warehouse and just watch them.
  2. Ac was one of the thing. When i sold the car it was needing new engine mounts, new fuel rails, new suspension, New AC duct box, some bushes under the car, roof paint was bubbling, when it rains water was leaking inside. I knew that even if i fix it all soon some other thing will come up.
  3. What i learn from my experience. If a Jeep already dead you cant fix it easily. You need to make full restoration which will be expensive and it is just not worth it. So better to buy a nice Jeep and keep it nice and good condition.
  4. Just sell it. Believe me best solution.
  5. For me I am using it. From the day bought it at least 4-5 time in a week I open the top. Even yesterday night I was driving top down. I think only between June to end of September I won't use it. I am thinking opposite this is the best country to have one. If day time too hot I am using at night time. If nights too cold at winter I am using it day time.
  6. Since i am having my SLK200 i am hearing many horror stories regarding the cabriolet cars. Like they are leaking water and when the car get old system is not working properly etc. There are 2 points you need to take care with your cabriolet to avoid these problems; 1-Use gummi pflege to keep your rubber seals maintained. There are many product you can use for that. As SLKWORLD forum members recomend best thing to use is gummi pflege https://www.amazon.com/nextzett-91480615-Gummi-Pflege-Rubber/dp/B004B8GTQG I couldnt manage to find this product in UAE(i just search online) so i start looking for alternatives and i find the product of Sonax https://www.ramyautomotive.com/all-products/car-care/diy-and-resellers/sonax-rubber-protectant-300-ml.html Since it is sprey it is not ideal but you can sprey it to a cloth and than you can apply it to rubber seals all around the roof. Also it is better to apply this product all rubber seals around the car like doors and trunk to keep them in better condition. 2-Use lithium grease to keep your roof system move free. You need to apply lithium grease to every moving part of your roof system. There are many moving part in the roof system. If they wont move free they will cause your roof to be stuck. I bought the grease from carrefour. With this 2 easy step you can have a healty convertible car.
  7. AC work. I prefer changing the engine or gearbox over doing any work on AC. It is expensive and it is hard to solve.
  8. For me that is impossible to do. I don't have that time to visit those places time to time.
  9. Where I can get Flowmaster muffler for my car? Online websites are all bringing from USA. Is there any dealer here in UAE?
  10. Wow how that happend? Normally if I am not have to I will not let anyone to drive my car. Sometimes there are restaurants having free valet parking and I am choosing to park myself and pay.
  11. My car is 2009 SLK200. I bought it for 26.000. I am having it from November 2018 and i put 20.000km on it. At this last 20.000km i didnt spend single dirhem except regular oil change. Ac is perfectly cool. Ac has 5 fan speed i am never using above 2 because it is too cold. Everything holding together very well nothing broken or cracked and engine cooling also no issue so far. I am having the full service history of this car from Gargash. Before me also they didint spend any single dirhem except regular maintenance. I dont know what was the condition of your friend`s car and i dont know how he was using it. In Turkey we dont have Lexus for us Reliability = Mercedes.
  12. V8 coming only with SLK55 AMG version. But i believe SLK350 enough for most of us.
  13. Mercedes SLK350. It is 277hp but it is very small and light. Cornering like crazy, it is sticking to road.
  14. As some of you may know. Jeep providing built sheet for the vehicles they produced after 1998. When i check my built sheet i surprised that i have dana 44 on the rear diff. Normally these GC`s are having Dana35 on the back. JEEPBuildSheetServlet.pdf
