Thanks for your suggestions everyone. I tried a few car showrooms around Barsha / Al Quoz and having dealt with too many smarmy lying salesmen got to the point where I was losing the will to live. I changed tack and bought her some jewellery instead, at least it's less likely to break down.

For a 100K dirhams, you can buy a nice classic muscle car in the US , like the classic Mustang. Being from a era without computer and electronic wizardry , they are also easy and cheap to work on.
