I went there with couple of my friends and one of them got touch screen with GPS+ screen chassis for his Mitsubishi Galant 2011 for only 20 KWD -this screen is not widely available in market and dealer sells it for over hundred KWD… golden deal, right? The other friend found genuine Xenon head lights manufactured in Germany for his VW Passat 2009 for only 70 KWD only.
The place organization reflects car market in Kuwait; one side for American cars, other side for Japanese and Korean cars and few places for German cars etc.

This place is real heaven for people who still decide to fix their cars after major accidents and don’t want to be ripped off by dealers. If you are about to buy car but you’re not sure which model to choose maybe heading to scrap could help you to make a decision as you will get idea about spare parts prices.
Please note that the scrap location is in desert so the entrance from highway will be bumpy and sandy as well as all roads in the place itself.It took me around 70 minutes driving from Salmiya to scrap. Please be very careful as u join road No.70 -Sabah Al Salem Al Sabah Rd- Salmi road- as it is camping area and lots of pick up trucks are crossing the road randomly!
