    Confident braking with the 800's. The perfect mixture between fast road and track. I chose them because I daily and then take it to clear the cobwebs on weekends.

    Sound deadening treatment for the car completed today. Significant difference in noise levels in the cabin. Feels a lot nicer now than before. Products used: Silent Coat 2mm and Closed cell foam 6mm.

    During the week I had done the whole floor of the car and a week before that the boot was treated the same way. Silent Coat 2mm, closed cell foam 6mm and then mass loaded vinyl on the surfaces. It significantly reduced road noise and has transformed how the car feels when driving on the motorway.

    Fair play for going to all the effort and the amount of work involved but I can’t see how the car be that loud . Running a spec c as a daily and it’s not that loud at all . Is your tyres the problem with road noise More so that bad sound Deadening

    Cheers. You're correct about road noise being the issue. On different surfaces it was very much apparent. The tyres aren't as quiet as others but not the worse either. Being a wagon with slightly more interior space didn't help lol. The exhaust noise was never an issue as it doesn't drone and isn't that much louder than a normal exhaust. Think I might have to correct that bit next

    Your running Yokahama advance ? There really a track tyre with Lots of flat surface area for grip so will be a lot louder that standard summer or winter tyres .
    But every little helps it’s just a lot of work and time consuming

    Yokohama Ad08R since last July. Even drove it in the snow. No issues. On a hoon and on track they were epic. Really stiff sidewalls which I prefer tbh. I reckon that's the source of the noise. Tempted to get a spare set of 17 alloys for the Ad08r and something in 18s for daily use.
