  1. This may look big due to spy shot stickers but in reality it sud be smaller than x5 and x6 isnt? sometime really wonder why bmw keep adding so many newer models with very little differences
  2. autonom will be taking the fun out of driving, and I tell you about adaptive cruise control is a blessing but actually a curse to drive in dubai where 50m distance means everyone will jump in front of you
  3. Delay in picking gear is def a gear / gear oil issue, but jerking while engaging in reverse could be gear or the engine/gear mountings being damaged. So while eliminating one thing at a time, you will deal with actual root cause of the problem and spend less time and money.
  4. If you have been maintaining with dealer then ask them for all the records showing full details and see when they have changed the gear oil last and what is the recommended kms for gear oil change in your owners manual? Does it match correct....?
  5. In spite of all Tesla ho-ha public makes, still this electric trend is way forward - UNFORTUNATELY. And being game starter Tesla will always have an upper hand.
  6. How many kms car driven? Do you have last gear service or change oil record? It still in warranty, then let dealer fix it as it may be very serious job. If you found the particles in gear oil, then change gear oil and filter at the earliest without driving any further. All you know it may fix the problem, if damage is not much due to stale gear oil. If not gear rebuilding is the only expensive route left. Hope it helps.
  7. @Gaurav may I know how did you manage to download google earth offline satellite terrain maps inside the motion x, I have been asking everywhere and no one seem to have any positive answer for this.
  8. Any clue guys which is the best bank in dubai and offereing lowest interest on car loans? Anyonbe using one with good or bad feedback please advice.
  9. Check in deira naif market opp shindaga tunnel, they have loads of toyota cosmetic and after market accessories.
  10. I would avoid desertcart, as they inflate pricing too much than the direct shipping. write to arnott guys and see what they can offer, if no use desertcart as a last option. I don't think arnott has any distributor here, but double check with them when you write for accepting credit card query.
  11. If you really want solid stuff and once for all go for arnott suspension who comes with some good number of kms warranty like 200-300K (not sure exact warranty), but it's not cheap.
  12. Anyone knows a place in Dubai or Sharjah where they offer car wash and car waxing service?
  13. Oil company still very risky, I do save in national bond and recommend same to get slightly better interest rate than bank in the form of dividend and plus chance to win something big (if you are lucky). And yet 100% safe that company is backed by Dubai govt so they wont run away with your hard earn money.
  14. Thanks guys. Happy new year all and may you get best of everything in this year.
  15. This chap Prem Thakur, 19 year old has built a car from scrap parts with help of youtube tutorials without any engineering background. What an amazing talent he is got! God bless such soul and give them right sources to harness such talent.
  16. He seems to me an Indian Donald Trump, hungry for name and fame after making lots of money.
  17. Why don't you invite your young friends here, as we are not that old and we can learn things from each other.

    Nice concept, I like the Season 0 - testing mode for being fully safe for the future, unlike many other over optimistic companies. Hope this work out and all of their hard work get paid.
  19. I think BMW X6 is the best candidate of how to turn X5 beautifully designed by Chris Bangle into a disaster for the sake of competing with upper league models.
  20. I guess this reserve tank capacity is linked to size of the car, its fuel tank and its fuel consumption depending on the driver foot size. Nice post, very unique way of looking into common issues.
  21. Gaurav, you need to clean that light switch man
  22. Grand Service Center on SZR behind Toyota Building next to first interchange. I think it cost 130 dhs, but they are very nice and professional in service.
  23. This is really good news and first time I am seeing a clarity in this long standing grey area to use or not to use dashcam here. TBH, I think cops here should allow and encourage everyone to use it and freely send the video to Dubai Police for below type of offenders: Cutting 4 lanes horizontally at 120 w/o checking the shoulder Driving in hard shoulders in busy traffic area Swerve all of sudden ahead of you w/o any indication Drive too slow in fastest lane and block traffic flow Tailgate you and blink 100 times in a minute like an ambulance or fire dept.
