    Does the diesel have insulation mats on the inside of the bonnet?
    My 2.0FSI doesn't have insulation under the bonnet, and I think it is too loud when idling after a cold start. It is very smooth and quiet once you get going, but I would like the car to also be quiet when i'm standing still.

    If the mats can be ordered separately, I think I would like to do this myself. Also, I guess this sort of stuff can be had much much cheaper from other suppliers than Audi

    Yes, the diesels have insulation on the underside of the bonnet.

    Yeah, tyre noise from the conti sport 2's is pretty high aswell. Allthough I am pretty impressed with their performance / grip both in dry and wet.
