Well this thread has been pretty much dead for a while and theres a good reason for that, i've been out of the country for a while. But just to keep this thread alive i've decided to post pictures of cars in Saudi Arabia found from the internet. Several pictures are courtesy the Jeddah Boys Website. (www.jeddahboys.com). Almost all of them were taken on the streets of Riyadh (my hometown).

I will start off with a collection of the old-gen S Class. Mostly S500's and 600's. Enjoy!

Default Bling Rims

This gives a totally different meaning to spending money $$$ on your rims.

Default Orange S-Class

I remember this one. It's been around for atleast 5 years now. At its time it was one of the most talked about rides in Saudi. In my opinion way too overdone.

They shouldn't have altered the front grill. It looks a shocker otherwise.
Yes, a bit overdone. But the job has good quality and finish.

I have noticed that most of the cars that you have posted have a similar looking registration number. Are they owned by the same bloke?

Edit-The 22" and AMG badging is cheap.

No they aren't. What similarities did you notice, I can't see any? And what are you refering to when you say the 22"/AMG badging is cheap-the looks or the fact that its done?

Awesome pics K-S-A! But must say some of the cars look hideous.
