It is impossible to register a R34 now, converted or not, not UAQ, RAK or AD will register it for you, unless you have BIG and I mean BIG wasta.

Top Secret in Ajman is fraud (well almost) they have their own garage to paint and do cheap fixes on the cars they sell, they replace aftermarket parts with stock ones and claim the cars are "full tazweed", also if you own a car and ask them to sell for a comission they will mark up over the price you want and will take the difference without telling you. too much problems.

Best way to get a R34 is to buy privately pre-registered and converted one.

btw last time I saw many converted cars refused for registration in UAQ, if you'r freind really says he can register it, be 100% sure of what he says.

for the conversion you can go to jouy in al-thaid or the saudi in al-aweer. I don't recommend converting in the first place, there will always be problems with the car sooner or later.

umm, I dont really suggest you convert a car or get a converted one, trust me its too much troubles for ya, first you got the job of getting it converted, registered etc, and then after all of that, problems will never end, one of them is that if you take a long drive, in a very hot noon, and a poor converted vehicle, you will turn the steering wheel and nothing will happen..
Good luck with it though, wish u all the best.. Skyline R34 GTR
let me know the progress on this

There were a few R34s in previous Auto Trader issues.
Another request...if anyone comes across a RHD Evo IX (MR preferable), please let me know.
