What brand are you looking at.Yeah, true. I'd go through a place like Iron Chef or something if I did it. Just keen on a couple of the models that are now available to import. :)
Haha, I am aware, and let's be honest, there's about a 98% chance I won't do any further research into this... just thought I'd see if anyone else had dipped their toes in.In regard to anything else, the only advice I would give, don't buy an import. More trouble and money than they are worth.
Under the car, and the roof is an issue. Seems to be very thin. It's ridiculously fucking loud when it rains. Sounds like golf sized hail hitting the car which is very distracting.Where's the noise coming from though?
Honestly, don't write off the tyres. I know what you've seen on the Internet with all it's "this is totally not a load of shit" topcis. But sound proofing is pretty rat shit value for money. If you're looking at value, which "more and for less benefit" would indicate, you're going to be seeing far better value out of rubber. I don't agree with the brand mentioned here, honestly, Bridgestone... or BS for short.... They're very good, but they're very over priced in most of their range.
What tyres are on it now? Don't worry about size, brand and model?
If you do go down the waste money route, I'd leave the doors alone, as no doubt you maybe in there in the future for speakers, and the sound proofing you want in there is different to whatever you use in the floors.
Stripping the interior. Trim, seats, carpet, roof lining, the lot. Applying the sheets (which have an adhesive backing) covering the whole surface area. Cleaning products to clean the surface, a heat gun and roller to apply the sheets will be required. Going back over it a second time with thicker material. Then putting the interior back together.Pardon my lack of knowlege on this but what does sound proofing you car involve?
FWIW, the I30 is a pretty nice car. My daughter in law has the SR and it's a surprisingly nice drive!
The i30 has been a fantastic choice since it's inception, and is to this day. It's probably best in it's class overall.
Because some of us aren't in the position to just buy an up-spec model. And some of us don't get enjoyment from just buying something off-the-shelf and claiming it as our own.
Yes, but you also don't know anything about cars.Because some of us aren't in the position to just buy an up-spec model. And some of us don't get enjoyment from just buying something off-the-shelf and claiming it as our own.
He bought something he would enjoy, something he could afford, and is looking to modify it to make it his own. He can do it up as the money is available to him, and admirably, is doing what he can with his own two hands. That deserves more respect in my opinion than the guy that just throws a cheque book at a mod shop, or ticks the options boxes at a dealership.
