Contains all car models sold in Gulf Cooperation Council countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, even models sold only in 1 of the 6 GCC countries.

I started this database in 2016, sourcing data from DriveArabia.com. originally been scraping DriveArabia’s UAE english section, so database included car prices in AED by default, other countries  prices can be provided at request basis, for an additional fee of $20/country ($100 if you want prices in all 6 countries).

Because multiple customers requested Arabic car names, since 2020 I am running scraper twice, for english and arabic, and at August 2021 update I decided to run once for UAE and once for KSA section, so database contain now prices in AED and SAR by default.

    I am creating a ecommerce site on wordpress
    Users should be able to look up lists under Make, Model, Year, Trim/Version to choose the particular vehicle
    can I use your code displayed here? Region: MENA

    1. You should tell me if this database is usable for you. I guess that it is… but I want to create a database that sell to as many is people is possible, not just to you and to few more people who don’t need detailed technical specs or features.
      This page is just 5 days old and you’re the first visitor!

  2. Well Teoalida, to tell you the truth, I’ve spent a couple of hours reading your website thoroughly and I really enjoyed your honesty and the database examples and the way you’ve organised it. I’m creating a classified website for cars and I believe your database would be of great help to me. I’ll not ask weird questions like the guys from India, my question is actually related to CARS 🙂
    I don’t want to waste your precious time, all I need is to visit these two websites and tell me how much of CARs data you can scrape out of these two websites.

    The first website is :-

    The 2nd website is :-

    I think the 1st website is more interesting and I wonder how many fields of categories and sub-categories you can extract, how much it’ll cost, and whether you already have this database ready to download it or not, because I’ve seen you’ve complied ME database.

    Thank You

    I suggest the following

    1. Scrapping data from car classifieds websites is the biggest stupidity. These websites have one page per CAR SOLD, multiple listings for same model, and technical data added by owners (prone to errors). To make a quality car database we need a website with one page per MODEL and technical data provided by manufacturers, such as DriveArabia. May I know how do you want the database to look like and how do you intend to use it??

      I moved your comment to Middle East page.

    This is great work done by Teolida. I need a complete database for cars in Saudi Arabia. I need to know how many makes and models are included in the paid package?

  5. Dear sir
    I am from Saudi Arabia
    I work in tire business and I am looking for tires fitment guide databases for our region, wondering if you can help me and find the products in your library to buy .

    Can I add the database in my system? If available.


    1. You asked same thing via chat and I recommended you best database but you don’t like it. Then what else do you like? I tried to email you and your email address is INVALID.

  6. hi, i was wondering if the “european” format is available for Middle East as well

    for example a BMW 3-Series 320i exists in Brand/Range/EngineVersion in the German database as in BMW/3-Series/320i

    In the Middle East database there is only Make/Model and i cannot see the submodel type from anywhere but only from Engine which is “2.0 I6 RWD” and doesn’t help me to recognice if it is 320i.

    1. The above GCC database based on DriveArabia do not contain version names, but only engine size and cylinders, but you can try the other 2 databases available in https://www.teoalida.com/cardatabase/category/middle-east/

      I feel sorry for being AFK and missing your chat message yesterday, then noticed your comment but you left INVALID EMAIL.

  7. I was about to make a purchase but when I saw how the admin replying to the customers in the comments I simply decided to not buying.

    1. Please understand that I receive over 50 emails daily in my Yahoo inbox, including notifications of comments (of which 90% are SPAM bots and only 10% posted by human visitors), notification of payments, Indian web development and other kind of SPAM emails, consequently I am NOT reading comments on regular basis thus not able to reply in time…

      Comments are good if you want to praise me AFTER purchase / add info useful for future visitors. If you have questions PRIOR to purchase please contact me via live chat in lower-right corner of screen, email to my Gmail, Skype, etc, so I can reply quickly.

      BTW, which comment you don’t like? PS: you checked the box to be notified if someone reply at comment, but when I replied this I got email bouncing back for invalid email address.

      1. I read the comments and I like a merchant who responding to customers. I just purchased and Teoalida’s databases are very good. Lastly you need to work on that UIUX on you site man…

    2. Hi,
