      exhaust system sounds identical to the us version:

      1. two rubber o-rings support in front of axle
      2. larger/heavier o-ring at rear of exhaust

      ( the rear o-ring is custom shaped and fits a certain way into brackets,
      this ring is bit trickier to install, a little lubricant might help )

      good luck- nutty
