What would make me prefer to buy it from Sharaf is that I can pay the amount in a 0% installment plan for 6 months since they have a promotion with Emirates NBD and I think with some other banks as well.
Just spoke to Shiju at AMIT and he is expecting 650 stock this evening. He will give it to you for AED 2,200 including the car mount which itself cost AED 250 at Sharaf. Decision between the cheaper option and installment plan is your call.

Ive had my montana 600 for quite some time now

got it from AMIT for 1800aed .... then they have all the mounting accesory options displayed on their wall for you to choose

get the coordinates from AMIT and it will lead you directly to the nice parking spot at the back\



FYI - the only difference between a montana 600 and a 650 is that the 600 is not equipped with a camera

I got mine Montana 650, incl. auto mount for 1,950.00 from Amit in June 2012. Probably you need to show Almost4x4 passport, or to tell 'trader' at AMIT that you know, that he is giving to different persons, different prices. Ask him, if he wants to see other invoice... When you are phoning them, they'll give you always higher prices.

I got my 650 for AED2200 including mouting on the windshiled last night (12.3.13). If I could have read this thread.... I could have this idea for bargaining, simply park my car in front of AMIT to show I am Almost4x4 member, perhaps AED1950 is granted... too late now.
