Dent Xpress Experience

About a month ago now there was hail storm in Kuwait during those five days of rain. I came back from my trip and noticed that my car had a few bumps, at first I thought it was a cat that jumped on the trunk, only to notice that it was all over the car. I mean a lot of dings on the hood, roof, doors, trunk, and side panels. I lost count but they were at least 60 bumps all over the car, I’m sure it got up to 80 but it was useless to count at that point.

At first I took it to the dealership to see what work needed done and how long it would take. I was told it would need about 5 days and certain body panels would need to be painted after the work was done, and it would cost anywhere between 800 to 1200 KWD. I couldn’t blame them on the quote the whole car was banged up and needed to be worked on. My friend told me to take the car to Dent Xpress, they do wonders and my cousin just dropped his car there it was banged up from the hail storm as well.

So I drove over to Nasser Center right next to Suncity in Shuweikh, they said they needed to see the car first. When I took the car they saw it right away and told me to bring the car in on Saturday 8 am, and it would cost 400 KWD. It was Wednesday and they were working on a black Porsche Turbo taking out the dings and it turned out to be my cousin’s car. They said they would need two full days to finish the car which is fine by me.

I took the car Saturday @ 8am to get worked on, they took the car right in and did their inspection, the car was riddled with dents. I left them to start working, and I was expecting a call towards the end of the day on Sunday or Monday morning. I got a call from the guys at Dent Xpress on Sunday at 10:30 am telling me my car was done, that was insanely fast. Faster then I expected really and they said I can pick it up any time today which is great. I went to pick up my car right after work and they had it in another back, excellent service and these guys know what they are doing. It was a lot cheaper then taking it to the dealership and a lot faster.

After all was done I had my car detailed at Al Falah and it looked brand new, without a bump it and looking all shiny. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs work done for their cars, they professional, effecient and clean. You fix your car without having to repaint it which would lower its value. Overall I think they did a fantastic should with the car and I would go back to them instantly if I need any work done.

GulfRun – 360 Car Show

GulfRun @ 360 Mall was one the best car shows that I have seen in Kuwait yet. The number of assembled cars was fantastic, a number of interesting machines in the show, my favorite being the Porsche 995 Gemballa, that is a true racer, a monster of a machine. I like it was separated, I was thrown on the German side next to my twin sitting next to my M6, looks like its going to be an interesting race this year with such a variety of machines.

The machines I worry about the most are those Mitusbishi Evolutions, they are machines to be feared. The way they look has no indication of what can be under the body, some can be monsters at 600+ bhp and others can handle like go carts. Then there is that Nissan GTR which looks really good in red, I’m curious what the Mercedes SLR is going to be doing on the track against all these machines, then there is the other 20 cars which weren’t at the car show since they were getting worked on.

The booths were filled with some sponsors, the most active being Wataniya Airways with their airline staff handing out the Diwaniya Membership program, then Wataniya Telecom, Huperoptic had an interesting stand with all the types of tint, then there was Dent Xpress who were catering to all their customers. I was at the GulfRun booth taking some t-shirts for keeps for later, and I go my hands on the hoodie that I wanted. I talked to so many people over those two days I lost my voice the next day. I can’t wait until 360 Mall opens all it’s shops, it is taking some time, I’m assuming that they will all be open by this summer at least. Thanks to (Bassem @ Wataniya Telecom for the photo)
