We decided to meet up with the prominent S2000 Club of the UAE and it sure was a busy day. Sorry for the long delay in posting up the photos and a very special thanks to everybody who managed to take and upload these shots! We look forward to hang out with the Honda S2000 club again and any other auto community out there.
Car communities are pretty small here and it really helps to join forces and work together on building better meets, events and drives!

Several 86 owners are getting billed excessively and differently for the same type servicing interval. The Maintenance costs of the 86, by far, seem to exceed that of certain German cars which kills the purpose of it being an entry level sports car.
As a courtesy for 86 owners of the UAE, our members provide you with this compilation of personal experiences and data. We hope the following helps you figure out what you are paying for when your 86 goes to servicing, what oil grade to use and what you should replace during every service interval.
Before you start complaining about why this is a ridiculous idea and why on earth would they approve a sedan variant while dropping the idea of a convertible version?

Plus, the wife is less likely to complain about it, the kids will probably like it and the insurance quote could go lower.
The 86, for the least, still remains loyal to the idea of being a ‘budget’ sports car. Though the price being proposed, initially, could probably be a bit too high but were not certain as we got the info from Australian sources:
