How to get a new Car in Qatar!

Hi Guys

I am moving to Qatar in weeks time and need some advises on buying a car.

I am thinking of buying a decent car used or new through a bank loan of 1500QAR as monthly installments. Do you think i can afford a decent car for this price or should i increase this bit more to get a good one. I am thinking of buying either Japaneese or European cars. Doesnt matter, but it should be fit for road.

Also, do you think i can buy this car before my residence permit is issued or i have to wait until i get one.

Please clarify.

Thanks very much.

Cheers

Would you like to buy Asian Games cars, try Toyota or Ford dealers.

Toyota dealer is located near Doha International Airport. The market is called Abdul-Ghany Tower as I know.

For 1500 you can buy the new toyota camry which is a nice car, but you do need your rp in order to buy a new car as well as a driving licence.

I always tell the truth, even when I lie

now im no expert on cars but for sure its easy to get a new car out here and one on the budget you are talking about! I believe Xena would be good to ask she is on the forum and has been car hunting!

Put it this was i am leasing a car at the moment for 1700 a month ( thats like hiring a car) and i kick myself everyday for doing this and not buying one! Your doing the right thing!

Just remeber that a car loses its value a new one as soon as you drive it so if your planning on selling it on in the near future then buy a second hand one!

love life!
