It makes a big difference on your sound... and on your gas mileage and performance. Think about adding about 500lbs of weight to your car which I have seen many people do. It can take a car and make it realllly slow.... so just keep that in mind.

Rob,

To install a layer of sound deadening product on your doors, floor & trunk & fenders is usually no more than 70sq feet.

70sq feet of any soundeadening product is going to weigh no more than about 25 - 30 pounds.

The extra 30 pounds is well worth it, it makes your ride quieter.

Why do Audi's & BMW's ride so quiet. It is because they have factory installed sound deadening.

When you drive a quiet car you have less fatigue. This is a good thing. Why not make your VW ride as quiet as a Audi?

If you reduce your cars road noise and tire noise by a couple of DB, your stereo system is in most cases going to be a couple of DB louder. Think about it!

The only time a person would add more weight than this is with a heavy MDF box and a whack of subwoofers.

Cheers

KevinLee
