Hello , as some of you know i live in the arabian gulf, the cars we get here are the "for export only" version. so if i was to ship my truck over there , will i be allowed to drive it there after shipping?

i asked a couple of american guys here from the american base and they told me that its Not possible. i understand its has to do with the atmosphere and polution. is this caused by the engine itself ? or does just the OEM factory exhaust differs ?? what if i install an aftermarket borla system ?

please i would really appreciate someone clearing things up for me.

Not sure, I shipped a 2000 Corvette to Switzerland when I was living there and had no problems. I guess that is a DOT question

it'd probably be cheaper and less hassle to sell your Lade in Bahrain, then buy a US spec one when you get here.

Whats the problem? Especially if the Escalade was manufactured in the US.
