Hello everyone,

I am going to move to Dubai in July and I'll study in AUD. I live in Turkey right now. I have my license and I want to buy a sports car when I move.

I test drived a used Porsche Carrera 4s 2009 in Nov. in Dubai but they sold it and Im not that into Porsches anymore because of that. I really wanted that car. I checked some Maseratis (GrandturismoS) and loved it but couple friends said that car is not for my age. Im 18 by the way.

My Budget is 285k AED max. I want a fast 2 door car. It doesnt matter if its used or not. 2008 or above model also. I really need some ideas. I am really confused. Thank you guys.

I started to think serious about the M3. My friend has a M5 and its a really nice car. I never drived a M3 but Im sure Its faster than M5

What you guys think about the Maserati? I really love the sound and the interior.

I will just go to that free zone area in Dubai (where they sell used cars etc.) and see what I should buy. Although I have a list now

-BMW M3
-Porsche Carrera serie
-Maybe a Maserati GrandturismoS
-A good Benz AMG

and if I have to go a bit cheaper I'll look for Evo or Mustang. Thanks everyone for posting. Keep up the good work.

18yr old +fast powerful sports car + UAE driving standards are the perfect combo for a disaster.
Whatever you choose please drive safe and keep racing off the streets.
If your friends in aud tell you it's not cool to wear seatbelts, find new friends.

Now back to car options.
There is a 07 Aston Martin vantage manual on dubizzle, buy something different, be unique.
Don't buy a common car like a BMW or merc even if it's a m or amg
I thought your first post mentioned your not into Porsches anymore? And it's also on your list? So which is which?

How about the new rush mustang? Manual and lots of power 250k aed
Or a used 09 gtr?

You want to take bunch of girls for ride after AUD classes ??
Go for Jeep SRT-8 !!

If you buy 2 door cars during your college days, you will most probably be roaming in your car with only one friend whilst your other friend will be enjoying with 4-5 people in his old 4x4.

Whats with buying fast car ?? Where will you race ??

Enjoy your college days being with friends rather than being alone in a 2 seater car. I used to love my group study session in my Prado and pick/drop my friends while listening to favourite songs

Anyways just my opinion on how to make the most of your car and uni days in dubai.

A second hand GTR recommendation from my side.
In torque we trust!
