Sound deadening materials

Anyone in the group tried any of the aftermarket sound deadening materials ? I'm starting to get a little hacked off with the sound of my diesel engine plus tyre/exhaust noise.

Yes yes - don't say it - i'll always have noise because I have an old diesel lump under the bonnet - but have you seen the material they attach under the hood ? Looks like something from a very thin malnutritioned sheep. Have seen the Dynamat and B-Quiet websites as well as a couple of others (Fat Mat) but can't beat good old fashioned comments from real users.

I think I just want an excuse to strip the car down and start soundproofing the whole kit caboodle - all i'll need then is a sound meter to get some before and afters.

There is a new product being imported into the UK called Second Skin. It's supposed to be very good and a lot more versatile than the traditional bituminous compounds.

I know of someone who's currently trialling it, so I'll post back in here when I hear the review.

Sound deadening

Use dynamat mate! It is the mutts nuts i used it on my door panels as the stereo was making them rattle and now when i shut the door it makes a high quality thump instead of the boingy noise that you so often find on our beloved french euroboxes.
Under the bonnet and bulk head its amazin how much noise it blocks out and you dont really need that much!
The drawback is that it is 150 for 6 rolls so it aint cheap but deffo worth it!

I've been considering replacing the stock sound-proofing panels under the bonnet with another material.
Although easy to work with Dynamat however is too expensive for me.

I see other Renault owners in the BG forum, have used another product for sound proofing - the trade name is Firex by Sanifoam. Although people here are sceptical about Turkish products, it seems to be cheap and efficient solution to sountproofing an engine bay. It's fire-resistant too.

That's what it looks like:

Here, this materials costs about 4.50 EUR/m2. From the producer's site I see the vendor for the UK is PriTex, so I guess you can check their price for this insulation.

PS. I don't want to make advertisement with this post, and I'm not affiliated with any of the producer/supplier in any way. If mods find posting links here to be out of line with forum's policy, please do let me know or remove them.
