Basic soundproofing

Post by Celery82 » Thu Feb 13, 2020 10:42 pm

Hello,

Can anyone recommend (without pulling the car to bits) any areas that be accessed easily to install some sound installation.

Got no major concerns but would like to dampen as much road noise as possible.

I am a returning K owner having breiefly owned a A-Class but missed the K so much I had to have another.

Any advice or pictures would be much appreciated.

I was thinking about adding some to the boot, but I think that the wheels have a HIGE effect on the sound.

I swapped to Michelin Primacy 4 (extra load) and the reduction in noise was honestly enormous!
