Welcome mate, you are in the right place!

Are you in the Middle East? Dubai? Qatar?

Looks like a 4.7 S to me and in Bianco Eldorado.

Here's mine in same colour!

Thanks Contigo! You are completely right, it’s a Bianco Eldorado, same as yours. Love your rims. I’m actually in Saudi Arabia. Have you been also around Middle East?

Yeah mate been to Saudi a few times (Riyadh) and spent many a time in Dubai and Qatar. What are you doing out there? Ex-pat? Or a local?

Nice! I’m in Dammam (Eastern Province), but have been several times to Riyadh. I’m an expat, have been here for several years now and probably will expend a few more.

I spent a lot of time when I was younger in KSA, I lived in dhahran and al khobar! Loved dune bashing in the desert and learnt to dive off half moon Bay amongst all the aramco wrecks !! Welcome to the forum, love the car, it must look amazing in the flesh with all the sunshine you have there!! Enjoy!!

I always found white to be the best colour for handling stone chips.

Lots of new resorts in Half Moon now. I’m not sure when was your last time around, but it has changed a lot lately. About the petrol price, 0.82 SAR per liter (around 0.25 US dollars). It’s still cheaper than water.

Do you remember when new cars came fitted with plastic seat covers to protect them at the factory and delivery, it was amazing how many people left them on to protect the seats for future owners to enjoy, you still see the odd survivor car at classic car shows with the plastic intact after 30-40 years.......

Yeah, I do. But I personally don’t like to see cars with the seats in plastic, the first thing that I do in any new car that I have bought is remove the plastics, but sure it may protect but just don’t like the looks. In the other hand, the paint protection can be a good choice as long it’s discrete and can not be noticed. Here in Saudi is really common as it gives protection during the sand storms as well
