    The worst part about driving in UAE is the friggin speed limit.Why does everyone have to drive at 30 mph even on the freeway?

    Well thats not true. on the highway its 100 kmph (60 mph) and on inter-state roads its 140 kmph (95 mph). but honestly the worst part of driving is the heat. so many cars dont come down here because of the heat and a lot of european and american cars do not last long for the same reason. its a shame.

    Welcome. How's Dubai doin? I know they were going gang busters on building for a while before the world economy melted. I saw a couple of architectural based specials on an indoor ski slope, and some high rises.

    There were a lot of lower end high priced cars.. I didn't see any mclarens or enzos or anything... I don't think I saw anything worth more than 300k while I was there... except the shelby cobra which appeared to be original

    Thanks! The ski slope is inside a mall and has been around for 3 yrs or so and so is the tallest commercial bldg in the world - Burj Khalifa. The economy did strike dubai quite badly to be honest, but its working out pretty ok now.

    Well, there are a lot of lambos, amgs, ferraris, etc out here. its just about being at the right place. there are a certain roads where these cars come by to be flaunted by their owners.
