Hi folks,

The only time my quest bothers me is when driving on cement roads, which are everywhere in US. Do you guys think applying sound dampeners will improve it? if yes, which areas to target? I can easily reach the floor, opening door panels would be something I would prefer a professional to handle.


but first of all, please let me know if it will work.

Opening the door panels is not that difficult. You have to try it once it realise how simple it is.
If its the dash and cowl area then it might not be of great help. I lived in Colorado for 10 years and there was only one freeway with concrete and I used to avoid it for the noise it used to make on my BMW/Honda/Acura.

Opening up door panels is easy.

Getting them back together again, all clips and widgets tight and in the right places, is the hard bit.

ha ha ha, good one thad, it's similar to "free fall doesn't kill one, it's the sudden stop at the end."

anyway, i am worried about the fitting itself, not messing with the electrical wiring and harnesses etc.

experts? i am still waiting for an answer if this will help reduce my tire noise. I actually think what will really help me is changing the tires, but that's a good 50K miles away.

Dynamat vs Fatmat vs B-Quiet - Beyond.ca - Car Forums

I think i will try B-quiet. in floor first, may be double layer in wheel well area. Has anybody done it yet? just for deadening the noise.
