I was stopped once by Shj police and got a 7 day impound, but that was only because I was driving REALLY low (Air suspension)

I went to the police station, had a bit of an argument with the officers there, bottom line is this:
If your car did not come out of the factory with an air suspension, it is illegal to install one.

BUT I went to the place where you register cars in Shj (near air port road), I had coilovers back then, 0 wheel gap, -4 degrees camber and my car passed. I also asked them if my car will pass once I install the air suspension, they said it will pass, just make sure the car is RAISED to almost STOCK height before you give it to them.

I sold the car before it was time to re-register the car, but the new owner took it to Dubai for registration, it failed. But only because "rear wheels too wide" lol :grin: (18x10 -8 offset :!: )
so once the wheels were fixed (I removed the spacers), the car passed :wink:
