I will be reaching in 3 weeks. I am particularly interested in the License question since I will be in a similar situation as you are- Indian citizen with US License. The only difference is I will be employed in Dubai. Please let us all know what your experience is :-)

Your passport must match your driving license, i.e issued by the same country. If not, you have to take lessons and a UAE driving test, which unfortunately is a hit and miss, with regards to actually passing the test. There are some older threads as well which list people's experience with regards the the various driving schools.

what is the average cost of servicing a car in Dubai? I know this will naturally vary car to car however I was wondering what a 'rough' price would be. If anyone knows how much the average price of servicing a 2003 porche boxster that would be ideal ha!

Just a guess but i`d be thinking around 3500 dhs to service a Boxster although I believ e they throw in a free pedicure and some Toni and Guy vouchers!! Ha Ha !!
