Hi, new guy here.

Suppose that you get yourself a:
- K&N 77 filter.
- 305/70R16 mud tires.
- Drive on roads without making noise. I.e. without wide-open-throttle.

Will the police in Sharjah, Dubai, Abudhabi, or any of them, make any trouble with you? If so what is that trouble?

If the tires are road legal, then it is fine!

But I don't think you can get away with a K&N intake (or any other CAI) in Sharjah, but a drop-in air filter is fine.

How can they know that I have a K&N 77 if I don't go WOT?

They will ask you to floor it! :grin:

I got stopped and was asked to put the gear on Park, and FLOOR IT! :roll:

It's a matter of making your car look as close to stock as possible, that way they won't pull you over! :wink:

lol I love flashy colors! I know I would never get stopped if the car had silver wheels and a color-matched trunk. :mrgreen:

What about you? You drive a Mustang, right?
