Hi there, im planning to buy a Mustang GT 2014 model. is there any place that could legally install axle back exchausts in Abu Dhabi? or is it illegal in all ways unless it comes originally from the dealership (like Roush and Shelby stangs)? thanks for your guidance in advance :)

No such thing as a 'legal install' for an aftermarket exhaust system. As long as its not too loud, you're good to go. Else, 30-day impound if you get pulled over - no questions, no reasoning.

If you still want to go ahead, I'd recommend Extreme Performance in Musaffah at 02-5559939. Pro tuners, best workmanship.

Never heard of such a place. And even if this can be done, I'm pretty certain it will not clear inspection if the exhaust is too loud anyway.

Just make sure it's not loud enough to attract cops.
