That isn't the only disadvantage we have in the UK, I suspect Dubai roads are not as lumpy as those here and maybe you will get a smooth ride with the large wheels so I can understand why you wrote " The cost in putting 20 inch rims on your XF would probably take at least 10 years to pay off in fuel savings, that's if the savings are actually real. But who cares really, the big rims would look superb. Surely that's all that matters.Jules said:I guess it comes from living in Dubai too long. Fuel here is about 22p a litre so over here we don't usually care about mpg, we go for the fattest engine possible and use sport mode most of the time. I forget that you guys back in the UK have a disadvantage in that area.
Try the Al-Satwa roundabout in Bur Dubai in rush hour! Oh, and please order me a mixed grill from the Golden Fork restaurant just by that roundabout...Jules said:True, the roads are all brand new and nicely manicured. But at least you get corners in UK. I fear I'm in danger of burning out my cruise control!!! I've spent the last weekend trying to source a decent roundabout where I can test the cornering propery.
And there was me thinking you were a young man :lol:Vapourgrey said:WOW, Dubai has changed!!!! When I was based in the Gulf there were no tarmac roads, no airport until half way through my two year tour and only a couple of buildings were more than two storeys high. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
