Just went for a quick TD early this morning with this new whatchamacallit.
Here are my observations, briefly:
1) Definite improvement in pick-up.
2) The midrange quality from my ICE was awesome, though the highs seemed a tad subdued.
3) My mobile stayed 'glued' in place even when I did a sharp right at 55kmph.
4) Found my car jerking more than before at lower revs! Still trying to figure out this unexpected development. (Probably to do with the exact placement of this anty skidy matty thingy).

However, a big Thank You Sam!

What about:

1. Fuel efficiency
2. Ride quality
3. Any improvement in the stability of the car on highways?

Man, you are amazing!
Seems all your anxiety waiting for the whatchamacallit was worth it!

Dunno what exactly you mean but I put bang in the middle of my dash space.
Wait a minute! Are you saying it should have been put somewhere inside the 'bonut'??
Please do tell to me quickly and then thereafter I will do another TD with correct set-up!

There's no tip around my exhaust, it's a kinda cavity.
And I strongly suspect you are not speaking the truth.
Anything flammable I wrap around there is going to go up in flames within a few minutes. Lot of seismic activity there!
You ARE pulling my leg now, aren't you?
