Well, actually the tech didn't find anytning because he's a moron! He just tore it down because the insurance wanted to see inside the engine.

Mivv Suono forever

Hey Biker Keith, I think you can have your cake and eat it too! What I have IS a Suono (not an Oval), with the deep, loud sound and the badass look. You can see it is a Suono by the groove it has on...

I got a pair of H7 HID. Installation was easy, light was awesome but both ballasts...
