Great looking cars!

What is on the Exige driver's side pillar (where the fuel door would be)? Stickers? Emblems?

Thanks!

There are not too many nice driving roads in the UAE. Most of them are just boring and straight. But this road definitely one of the better ones. It is also a favourite with the biker-community here in the Dubai.

One of our next outings will be this road :

Jebel Hafeet

Those are the FIA compliant exterior kill-switches. The Exige is in full race-spec, but since they don't know anything about these cars here it was passed as road-legal

nice! I don't know how comfortable you guys are going to be driving in 120* heat. It's 102* here today and I'm not going for a drive.

Hi Green Hornet.

All the good roads are about 1 hour East or South/East from Dubai, except the Autodrome or Yas Island

It actually is not that bad. I do have the heater core bypass:

(I actually have the heater core permanently bypassed)
Refilling the AC with fresh freon also did wonders and I hardly have to resort to turning the fan up to strength 3.
I do still want to get the windows tinted, to reduce the heat of the burning sun even more.
