[quote="blakat"]Salam Alikkum, i am totally new to this..
but i am so crazy about cars and the modifications, my dream car , i want to buy , inshaallah n chnage in to a lion in HONDA CIVIC 99 HATCHBACK.
It seems that u r at the right place for advice but you came to buy a radio and the salesmen are showing you fairness cream! anywayz it is well said that are limits to car modifications.civic is a very gud choice...
the rules are:
1.the exaust cannot make high noise..tht means u can fix a 3.5 inch pipe but cannot fix without silencers..there r few blockers which u can fix n open anytime.
2.the body kit can be fixed but make sure the height frm the ground is more thn 4 inch. minimum.before u fix or make the kit, buy the rims and tyres and set the height of the gap between tyres and body.
3.paint of the car is not a problem..if u want to change te colour, all you hav to do is get a paperwork done frm traffic dept. make sure you indicate in the paper if you gonna hav two colours on the car..tell them both da colours.this is best during the registration period of ur car so u hav the colors written on ur mulkiya.so u dont hav to find a separate paper whn da cops stop u!
4.turbo kits cannot be installed on dubai reg. cars.tht means when u heavily modify da exterior the cops catch u da most n der r chances of opening up ur hood and the turbo to be seen by the cops.so it is recomended tht is da exterior is modified dont install turbo...turbo can be installed in a normal stock car n never be caught!
5.any type of interior mod. can be done.but remember to put down the volume of ur woofers in the residence areas during the night.it is like calling the cops to catch n fine u!
6.neons under the cars r not allowed. i mean u can fix them but cannot switch them on during driving.only when the car is stopped because it is said to be distracting the other drivers!!der4 illegal
7.remember not to exceed the limit of tinting in ur car.u can be fixing vinyls to make it look better.
8.lambo doors are no problem..better go for the universal lambo doors tht u can make the doors open both the ways!
Actually these rules does not go for all the cars,because in uae the cops alwayz disturb normal cars which r modified but not the sports cars! alwayz tell you tht this car is not a sports car its just a sedan.note: u r not allowed to modify the exterior in such a way tht the car cannot be recognised by the majority.tht is the limit to exterior modificaton.remember to get a clean job done to the exterior.
Allrite bro..i hope this helps..n remember if u r modifying the exterior think twice before going to Ajman...n u cannot drive fast in most roads here..all the mountain like humps will be a problem..go for the kits which wont take u 2 da garage every week!! Dont speed a lot!!
keep dis car as a weekend car..cant use for daily work!beacuse u never know any time any cop in bad mood can impound ur car for any reasons!
