Found this in the glovebox of my new zed, cylinder shaped piece of foam about 4 inches long, possibly from the sound generator?

If it sounds great without it I'd definitely leave it out. :thumbsup:

There'll likely be the smaller section of foam left in the sound generator. Easy to remove to see if you like it even more.
Most seem to prefer the smaller section left in but prefer it out. :driving:
