not cryin' just stating a fact - all the rest of the hoses on the rack were between 10-13$ so you can get a lot for <15$ and most were a s**t load bigger and longer than this piece of crap and they want 3 times the price - its a rip off

fuk imported cars

I would have looked at the other hoses to see if any were similar and maybe even modified one.

I might be rough but f**k I am slow
