  1. @MisterPoet - DIY tips : If the toothpaste scenario dint last longer than expected , I would suggest to go with the sand paper rub with water + headlight polish and to complete it with a clear coat spray. (Take a 3-5 minute break after every stage) Highly recommend brand Rustoleum enamel clear coat as I had bought 2 CANS for 60aed from Souq/Amazon, Also used the remaining on my rims for a glossy finish, make sure you do all this in a closed area, You might need 1-2 hours to complete all the above, Do watch couple of youtube videos on the same for more tips and materials required for a perfect job !! Enjoy, All the best !!
  2. Take it to a Auto electrician who can inspect all the 4WD switches and censors prior purchasing any parts. As per my understanding, under the hood below the air filter is the Solenoid switch (Its 1 set with 2 switches) Then underneath the vehicle, front differential area you will be able to find the actuator switches and the double switch, Some of them have have 6 whereas my 3.5 2015 GLS has only 5. I'm not sure if all of the mentioned will cause any vibrations. @Sidshk Did u change your timing belt recently ?
  3. @Derick During your visit to the AC technician, You should consider the extra cooling fan as @Fuad was suggesting, I have come across several other Pajero owners mentioning the same. In addition to that, Its proven that normal window tint can provide upto 30-40% of heat rejection, while the premium tint can provide heat rejection upto 70-80%. All the best !!
  4. Considering longevity, I would suggest to go for a paint job especially if you intend to use this vehicle for the next few years. (It shouldnt cost you much if its only the side mirrors) Stickering options wont last and you will have to redo it in couple of months time (50 to 100 aed depending on the quality of the material used and the place)
  5. I was jst checking if he has already bought a 4x4, jst kidding 😛 yeah saw the thread date after I commented
  6. We are thinking of a sedan, this should be perfect when compared to its rivals !! Wonder how much I'll be saving on fuel cost if we can achieve 100km in 4 Litres.
  7. I think most of us can relate to this
  8. One of the best I have used in my Pajero, Pirelli Scorpion STR
  9. @VishalJC Welcome to Carnity, I'm sure you will start thinking of buying a 4x4 very soon. All the best, Enjoy !!
  10. Hi Fuad, I need to get one as well. I'm thinking of below options or maybe we can go to DM one of the days and physically inspect available options that is not too heavy and easy to use (with a capacity of min 2 ton or above) https://www.amazon.ae/Hydraulic-Floor-Jack-2-ton/dp/B07V8C5KVZ/ref=asc_df_B07V8C5KVZ/?tag=googleshopp09-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=372530264524&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11872595619247502867&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1000012&hvtargid=pla-803380389058&psc=1 https://www.amazon.ae/Ford-Hydraulic-Trolley-Garage-Change/dp/B00T4OJ3YM?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00T4OJ3YM&pd_rd_r=59caf9b5-4b3a-4955-8ea2-1dc10cce2eca&pd_rd_w=5dGjQ&pd_rd_wg=P2Cbs&pf_rd_p=59021c89-d5ac-4429-be06-c67cba534e65&pf_rd_r=X2JHE2J6BGJST1SX5WVM&psc=1
  11. I was in a hurry though I tried my best to compare all the inclusions, exclusions and additional options that was provided, With 0 claims, I paid 1744 AED for BASIC Comprehensive, Additional 200Aed for Rental car benefits upto 7days, Deductible : 350 AED fixed, no agency repair and no specified workshop or area mentioned, could be any of the approved Noor takaful garage in Sharjah or anywhere in the UAE ) However, below listed were my main considerations : 1. Estimated Vehicle value : 59k, 2015 LWB 2. Geographical Area Coverage : UAE & Oman (For oman only own damage) 3. Off road cover : (Some of them offers a tricky coverage which mentions only off road pullout or within a limited distance from the road, Noor Takaful did not mention any limitations that I could find to read, other than below ) - Off Road Cover (4x4 / SUV with off-road capability only) : YES - Off road & desert breakdown recovery : YES - 24 hours accident & breakdown recovery : YES - Towing Support : YES (Not sure if its free or there's going to be a charge :p) 4. Windscreen Damage : Upto 3.5k 5. Personal Accident, Driver & Passenger : 200k respectively. 6. Third party liability for bodily injury : Unlimited 7. Third party property Damage : AED 2 M and many more standard coverage which is offered by all others potential insurance companies these days like coverage for Natural calamities, riot, strike, loss of personal belongings (upto 4k only), Legal liability extended to include family members/passengers as third party, Emergency medical expenses (upto 4k only), Ambulance Services etc. Anyways, thanks @Gaurav, totally agree to your comment especially on the surprise part after-all life is full of surprises !!
