  1. Hello Folks, Howdy!. Just wanted to update that I was unable to find the time to get a used part for the intake pipe, and so got a new one and had it fitted: 1. Part cost: AED 370 2. Fitting Charge: AED 50 So that was AED 420 in total that I had to shell out!
  2. @Barry and @desertdude thanks for sharing the tech lowdown on the issue guys. Lemme arrange a cost effective solution to this and share the feedback.
  3. Hi @desertdude, thank you for sharing this, mate. I will check with out for sure and share the feedback.
  4. 1. @Srikumar & @GauravThank you, I just realized how a past issue I faced could have contributed to this. I never knew, You guys seem to have nailed it. ๐Ÿง. I did have an engine mounting issue in the past, before I joined carnity, and it did take a long time to diagnose! I remember, when the problem was identified and was being fixed, the old mounting fell with the rubber dampers almost nonexistent! I guess the damage to the air pipe was well into play by then, but me being me simply didnโ€™t know ๐Ÿ˜‚. 2. @Gaurav My apologies, Iโ€™m still catching up on the lingo ๐Ÿ˜‚. You are right, the mechanic did use a larger tape for fixing the tear- approx 1 inch wide, it was topped with an additional insulation tape of the usual type. #mebeingme ๐Ÿ˜‚ 3. @Gaurav if anybody were to ask me- what was the greatest learning of the drive, I should say, hereโ€™s where I found the guidance & courage to try and use the tiptronic shift (2nd half of the drive) that I was scared to use before and oh MY, it was awesome!! Thank YOU, you are a true guru!
  5. Dear Carnity Team. Good day! Just thought I'd share a recent vehicular performance issue I faced. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this: Vehicle: Nissan Patrol Safari Year 2005. Not a Plus 1 car, this is my regular vehicle for all commutes. 1. My car has been in quite a good condition, During my first 2 Off road drives (Newbie) , I was able to punch through quite comfortably. I think the vehicle played a HUGE part in off-setting my inexperience- I am sure it helped me plow through a lot of dicey situations due to sheer power alone, using only the Automatic "D" gear. 2. Post my 2nd drive, returning to On-Road, I started noticing that the car felt a little different, it was as if she took a longer time to achieve prior speeds. I thought that Off-roading had caused some sort of On-road issue, and let it be. 3. During the latest drive (my 3rd) the car simply wasn't the same. I can't explain the feeling, it's as if she just was not up to it. . I wasn't able to charge up the Pink rock on both routes, I did all the FLOORING of the accelerator that I could but she simply wouldn't budge. 4.. Luckily, I just got my vehicle serviced today, and the mechanic was able to identify a certain tear in the intake pipe. His actual words were: "Raizing mein problem aata hain kya?" :๐Ÿ˜‚. (Do you have any issues during full throttling?) As per him this could have contributed to the performance issue during the recent Off-road trip. PFA ref Image. 5. A new Intake Pipe costs AED 375 (Shops near Al Suwaidi Garages in Ras Al Khor), I've decided hunt for a used spare later, hence the pipe's torn section has been taped with insulation tape for the time being. Cheers!
  6. Dear Carnity Off-road Club, Thank you SO MUCH for organizing this event. I don't know how else to state this- EVERY drive is such a huge learning experience. For a total newbie like me, it takes the company of experts like you all (and your unending, selfless patience) to help in my learning. And to top it all, its an absolute honor to have spent time in the company of all the kind, warm and hospitable participants. @Gaurav, @Rahimdad, @Srikumar, ALL DRIVE PARTICIPANTS, you guys absolutely ROCK! (PS: There is an vehicular performance query that I faced during the ride, I will share my experience on the same via a separate topic, for soliciting feedback. Cheers!)
  7. Hi @Ren13 & @desertdude, thank you for the feedback. I agree, while the desire to have a fully adaptable car seat is indeed very tempting, I will look into the upholstery option too. Lemme get more info on this, and if it will address the issues I am facing. Hi @Gaurav, thank you for your feedback, and even more for sharing the listings. I will check with these folks. Wishing everyone a great weekend!!!
  8. Dear Carnity Team, Greetings! Hope all is well. I am looking for changing my current Driver's seat on my vehicle (Nissan Patrol Safari 2005). I presently have the old design, with the 2 manual knobs for adjusting the lumbar & hip support settings. This is starting to get quite uncomfortable on daily commutes & weekly long drives If I wanted to change the Driver's seat only, to an electronic one with all the creature comforts , would this be compatible with my vehicle? Plus any cost reference if you have, please. (PS: I've already trawled the Sajaa shops for a second hand Super Safari seat, but to no avail.)
  9. Hello Folks, my apologies, only able to post just now. 1. Visiting the Aftermarket shops in SHJ, behind Sahara & near the Tire shops, I found only one shop selling the spoiler in Grey, cost including installation was AED 450, last price quoted was AED 420. I skipped this. 2. Next I visited the user spare shops in Sajaa, but could not find any event after trawling about for ~2 hours. . So the hunt continues
  10. Thanks @WiLfY. I am gonna hunt around for a new spoiler today so wonโ€™t be joining. I want to really thank you for the offer mate, hope to meet you on the next drive! Wishing you and the entire off-road team an awesome day today!! Cheers ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป Sajith
  11. Yeeeha!!! I am gonn go spoiler hunting today!!!! Thanks a ton @Rahimdad & @Barry. You guys rock!!
  12. Dear @WiLfY thank you for the offer, my apologies on the late reply. If its still open I would love to join in for the ride. Request if you could confirm ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿคž. Grateful for you support, Sajith
  13. Hi @Barry, Thanks for the detailed reply mate! 1. Iโ€™ve been to the aftermarket shops in Sajaa. Is this the only place or coul you suggest additional hunting grounds. 3. You are spot on about the mileage ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚! Thanks again, Sajith
  14. Gentlemen, Good day! Hope all is well. I would love to join this drive as a fellow passenger. Would anyone have a spare space so I could tag along? Also, could anyone tell me if its okay to leave my car at the first meeting point? Grateful for any help, Thank you
