Never heard of or found any, but if you do find some would be interested to hear more…

Best I’ve seen is ex-demo’s with circa 1,000kms on the clock being sold by Al Futtaim.

The other is the perennial 'suggest a nice restaurant - with no clues regarding type of food, area or budget. You suggest somewhere really good and then they say it has to be within 100 metres of their flat, serve only red food cooked by left-handed chefs and cost no more than Dhs 50 a head.

ha! good one (I read that as shark fisting at first and was mildly interested)
heres another one in the stupid questions category

hey Irish, man im looking for a laptop, which is the BEST one you have man?
well theres this one, costs about 2000 aed
oh no no no, I dont have that much money, I only have 100 aed
wtf are you doing asking for a laptop anyway?????

and as a rule I do not recommend restaurants because the moment you do, the other person becomes this world class 5 star food critic and will call you in the middle of the night to tell you that the left handed chef's head cost more than 50 aed
