Dubai Motor Show 2015 Highlights

,

The Dubai Motor Show is a biennial auto show held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Due to the high interest of expensive cars in Dubai, this auto show attracts major car and super car manufactures, tuning companies, Antique Auto and Classic Car Restorers, Automotive restoration providers, a slew of motorcycle manufacturers, and other related companies.

This year, I went to see for myself whether the Dubai Motor Show meets its hype or not. I parked the car, walked the long walk, paid the AED65 (~$18) entry fee and and went into the Dubai International Convention Center halls. It wasn’t the weekend thankfully, so the crowd was just right. Funny enough, while strolling through the halls, I ran through a small crowd and lots of mobile phones taking photos. It was the entourage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (The Ruler of Dubai) who was visiting the Dubai Motor Show, with his son Shk. Hamdan, crown prince of Dubai. The later is one big royal fan of automotive jewels.

Renault Captur 2016 Proud Owner UAE Review

,

We ended up buying the Renault Captur 2016 model.

In this Renault Captur UAE Review, I’ll tell you how it happened.

It all started when then wife persuaded me to buy her a new car which should be a crossover. I had to put my foot down and say yes dear. Then we began short-listing cars based on budget, features, looks, safety, etc.  We also researched online forums, manufacturers websites, pre-owned car reviews and such.

The criteria we gave highest ratings in our next car were:

1. Fuel; economy because I’m a casual tree hugger
2. Safety; because we want to live a little longer
3. Budget; because that holiday in Switzerland
4. Looks; because the status quo
5. Luxury; Features for passengers other than us

HTC Desire 820 Review

HTC Middle East sent me one of their mid-range mobile phone; the HTC Desire 820, for a quick review.
