12 Must-Have Accessories to Install in Your Car

Dubai has an excellent public transport system that includes buses, the Metro, and even water buses. On the other hand, if you prefer to drive at your own pace and go anywhere, anytime you like — then having your own car is convenient, indeed!

Likewise, it’s also a good idea to have your car fitted with accessories that make life easier: a phone mount for hands-free calling, a charger for your phone, compartments for food and other items… all of these things would help to make driving a more convenient experience!
