Default District One

Hi all,

We are moving to Dubai in September and I wanted to ask if anyone had any feedback on living in District One (Mohammed Bin Rashid City) on Meydan Road?

Also looking to buy a Range Rover - does anyone have any tips on dealing with Car dealers in Dubai, I heard Rammadan is a good time to buy a car?

Many thanks in advance,
M

I live just around the corner. It's a great part of town - 10mins to DIFC if that's where you work on almost traffic-free roads. So when the RR breaks down you won't have to worry about cars beeping at you for blocking the road.

Locally you're a few mins to downtown and business bay, and there are supermarkets. No schools though really.

Just make sure you sell it before the warranty runs out.

This thread is a nice glimmer of hope for all Dubai-ers, someone coming in September and already thinking of buying a Range Rover before arriving. I'd say hold on, because if you are thinking Range Rover now at the very least once you get here you'll upgrade the dream to supercharged Range Rover.

Don't RRs have a poor reputation everywhere?

If you want a nice 4x4 that is out of warranty and not a moneypit , better of getting a landcruiser.

Exactly, mix some aspirational lifestyle with some easy credit and it's a Lambo Urus... in bumblebee, of course.

The old Land Cruiser suggestion. They're plastic filled lumps of functionality over pleasant and a boring mediocrity for the same money.

You probably didn't pay for it and wear dirty boots. Who gives a ****? You could hose a Land Cruiser down inside and it would all still work.

There's definitely a pair of boots in the back mate but i can tell you they're not dirty , more for show to be fair . To be honest its a works motor but its a great unit to be driving around in . I wouldn't wedge out for one if it was my cash.

It will though run forever , you need to nuke those things from orbit .

Oh they're superb motors but if you're eyeing a Rangey, I don't think they're in the same category.

I have a hard hat, high-vis and boots in the back of my car. They're hidden under golf clubs in case someone wants to ask which site I'm on and notice the boots are pretty much sparkling.

The Japanese 4x4s just can't do posh like RR and G-Wagon.
