Luay the new joiner

Post by Luaymikkawi » Tue Mar 03, 2015 12:26 pm

Dear all,

It is really a pleasure to be a member of your club, I have registered recently, and I am really excited to participate with the clubs' activities.

I am a new owner for a Toyota FJ Cruiser GXR, and my experience in Off roading is minimum, I would really like to extend it to the maximum with you guys.

Hi to all, I am open to all advices from all members (I am also new to forums :).

Can somebody help me and tell me what is the best brand for window tenting?

Thanks to all,
Luay Mikkawi

Hi Luay and welcome, there's an ANIT drive posted for first time drivers this Friday that's the place to start! More info and register at the link below:

I don't know enough about window tinting to offer any good advice, except 3M is known as a quality brand and lately I hear people talking about ceramic tinting for heat reduction. You can often find deals on Groupon for tinting so might be worth a look..

Have fun :)

As a new member welcome.

For your introduction to desert driving, we have an ANIT trip (Absolute newbie in-desert training) trip, which all members start with. this includes safety equipment, history of club, driving techniques, understanding your car better etc. typically an easy drive for a couple of hours with option of a bbq/chit chat at the end.

Lukily there is such a trip this weekend with Yehia in Abu Dhabi (Friday 6 March PM link below
http://www.ad4x4.com/club/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21303

here you can get your feet sandy (and possibly your car) and also have many questions answered.

regarding the tinting, i still haven't done mine so i will be also awaiting the answers aswell.

Safe Off Roading.

Welcome!

Will argue that the best tinting is VKool!

Welcome to the club! One thing to consider with window tinting is if you plan on doing any night drives (quite common during summer months) the tinting will really reduce your visibility.

See you on the sand!

Agree with Kaylie's comments - you will have to drive with open windows!
