  14. I lost my number plate and filed a police report . Upon receiving the email, lost certificate, I noticed, there was error on the report issued, everything eg. Requestor name etc was all ok, except the vehicle plate number/ owner etc.... 😂 Called call centre, and they said please go to Port Rashid police station and check with them, and request them to update it manually, and Call centre also confirmed they are able to see that what I requested was my number plate and the certificate issued was for a different one. After visiting, they updated manually and issued new certificate -however upon asking why is the mistake there - *Sunday * * Cost of police report : 70 + Cost to print plate in RTA - 35 ( small one) so guess, next time lost number plate - Please try to raise police report on Weekday😄

  21. @Mahesh_ Driving in night is a different experience, some enjoy it and some dont...:) very subjective. However based on my personal experience, I would recommend you do one NB or FB drive, and understand if thats your taste and comfort...personally me too I dont have off road lights, but more than that i have 50% tinted glasses, so i realised my enjoyment is Day light drives but once in a while, specially closer to full moon I love twilight and night drive too:)...
  22. You will! Looking forward to the be part of ur spl 50✌️ As promised this drive will be second leg of where we left last drive, so we start where we had our end , and cover Double bowl in first 30 minutes💥😁!
