very irritating Dan ! I hate rattles etc. Got a couple on the seat Leon , door panel which is common and dash surround which you guessed it is again really common. I did have a centre dash rattle on my K which I just couldn't get rid of or locate.
But engine rattle is a problem. Unfortunately could be loads of things...hopefully as you said they can find something in the winter check.

Have just done comparison test fir the bonnet acoustic insulation for sound levels and externally the reduction in noise at tick over is 6dBs and internally 3dBs.

Well that should be well enough for you to be able to notice the difference with your ears as well.

I always thought that the bonnet and under front wing sound deadening liners were worthwhile.

Shame that tyre road noise still gets through the front struts / suspension arms / antiroll bar - how can you deaden that noise, I wonder?

It would be nice to know the dB effects of different tyres on the Astra K road noise.

Just had 1st service done and the service manager was well impressed with the bonnet insulation. 1st one he’s seen with it fitted. I must say it does look far nicer and properly finished.

I thought the under bonnet insulation was standard on 1.6T. Mine has it and the stuff in the front wings from factory...
