Since I'm putting in a new headliner, figured I'd improve the factory soundproofing a bit.. ordered from www.cmttrading.com 2 boxes of dynamat xtreme a total of 72sq feet. that should do it ;)

The best part of the deal. They have dynamat xtreme for $107 and you can pick it up locally instead of ship.. retail price on the stuff is $250 :o what a rip off..

I'll take some pics and let you know how it turns out.

They are at www.wurthusa.com

I am not a fan of the company, but I have to admit that they have good products.

I dunno if it is cheaper better faster but, it is an option. The stuff is a composite of heavy sheet sandwitched between light, squishy foam with a reflective surface and, it already has an adheasive backing. If it will quiet down a pair of 1485hp v12 diesels

it should perform adequately for your needs.

good luck

thanks..

Just checked out the wurth stuff. If my math is right

wurth 69.95

(20" * 8") * 10 sheets = 1600 sq inches = $0.0437 / inch

dyanmat $107

(18"x 32") * 9 sheets = 5184 sq inches = 0.0206 / inch

ends up being bout twice as expensive

It is good stuff though, a lot of stuff BMW uses right at the

factory.

well let me rephrase.. at retail prices wurth and dynamat are the same price. Bnot the price that I found, which was half of retail

just filling the space under the rear seat with chunks of packing foam (or even styrofoam peanuts in plastic bags) will make the interior a lot quieter. Then put household carpet padding under the carpets and up the firewall under the carpet. Insulating the roof helps, but most noise comes from the road and things mechanical like the engine and diff.

Cheers

I went to K-Mart and got cheap foam regular sized pillows and put a pair under the rear seats on all 3 of my '02s. Does indeed help.
