Hi,
Is the offroad flag supper mandatory for this drive ?
I will definitely install one, just not sure if I can make it before Friday.

Hey, welcome to Dubai Offroaders. It allows the car the behind you to know where you are so it is an essential safety tool we utilize especially for newbie drives.

You can easily get a mount in the next two days or even a suction cup one would do temporarily.

However, if you’re unable to get it by Friday, we will manage but I strongly recommend you try to get it.
