Car costs?

Hi everyone. In relation to another post about what everyone drives, I was wondering what a typical range of car payments are in Qatar? My wife and I are moving to start a contract in August and will be living in Al Khor, so will need a car to go back and forth to Doha I'm assuming fairly frequently. We will have a combined transport allowance of about 2400 QR per month. I'm thinking we'll probably take a loan to buy a car and then sell it before we leave, so that we don't lose as much money as leasing/renting for two years would be. Would anyone be willing to post what they pay per month, on what kind of car, and how long your loan term is? I know this is a bit personal, but just trying to gather as much info as possible. We'd be coming into it with little or no down payment.
