Phenomenal. The black FJ looks outright evil. If only Toyota did this in RHD and sold them here

Did you feel the need for an upgrade to your FJ or was it just something you wanted to do? BTW how much does a stock FJ with rear diff locks and ATRACs retail for in dirhams?

al futtaim's business of toyota and lexus is down by 30-40% due to economic recession.

prado is being offered at a very cheaper price, 1980/ dhs a month for a 60 month payment plan ( 118000 dhs), with a free registration!

stocks of unsold cars are pilling up in jebel ali and various other stock yards. cars not selling in dubai! banks are refusing to finance cars because they dont have liquidity.

banks are refusing to finance cars to people with salary below 10,000 dhs a month, banks are asking for 10-30% downpayment for cars of various makes.

things are about to get worse here, in dubai!

I was just thinking that the 200 at a starting price of Dh 140k is still great value for money

What's puzzling is how they manage to price a car that costs around Rs 16 lacs to way beyond 60+ when they do get it in!

I'm sure even a full spec Prado won't be more than 130 and here they sell it at 40+ Total ripoff

Did you add the Hummer type grille to it.

BTW please learn to upload images. If possible convert them to .jpg instead of bmp.
