Imagine if we gave them an Amby to do up!!!

Having seen the arab boys of Saudi Arabia, I must say you guys are being very hard on them. They're not out and out auto enthusiasts, but if you're a young man living in a country where you have no chance of interaction with the opposite sex, no pubs/liquor/alcohol, no cinemas, no public gatherings, no places to drive to, no music concerts and nothing to spend your money on other than tacky car accessories this is what you'd end up doing too...

Its unlikely that most of the boys there are 'rich', because the cars are all pretty common rides except the Cadillac, the Cayenne and the Merc and you will notice that those are all stand alone pictures with none of the 'boys' in it - those are probably pics of someone else's cars. The Maxima is their favourite (and for good reason!), followed by the Accord - cheap cars they can afford.

Mind you, this is one part of the world where the really exotic cars are so common that you dont waste a 2nd look when a CCR or a McLaren passes you in rush hour traffic.

You said it man. Was in Dubai a couple of years ago and when the sun goes down the sheikhs come out with their exotics....one after the other.

Quite true, to a large extent. They look vulgar though.

Speaking of rare supercars, my friend spotted a Lister Storm and a CC8S in Jumeirah. Unbelievable.

Hmm nice comments :-)

Ok Now let me clear something, the objective of this thread was not to tell how beautifull or ugly these mods are BUT to show what kind of mods people do in some part of the world
