Sound insulation

Post by Onethumb1047 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:26 pm

I have a 1.6 diesel Elite110, I wonder has anyone installed sound insulation under the bonnet?. And was it beneficial?

I have the 136 version, got to say I have no reason why I'd need under bonnet insulation. My engine for a diesel is extremely quiet from within the car & not bad from outside the car either. It's the quietest diesel I've ever owned, owned a few previously to this engine.
Are you finding yours is noisy?

No not really for a diesel it’s fairly quiet. I’m just curious has anyone tried it.

I like it purely for looks.

It does nothing for insulation, it only slow downs the heat transfer to bonnet.

Thanks everyone for your replies, on the strength of which I will leave well enough alone. There is wisdom in the old axiom “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.
