    Glad i don't have the soundproofing then as I can hear my turbo really loud even with the windows shut when giving it full tilt!

    I don't think I have soundproofing anyway.....

    It's not fitted to mine either, build week 50 2006. Can't say my turbo is that loud and compared to the dealer demo I drove my dump valve is almost silent.

    Regards, John.

    I had a Golf Gti before my S3 and I removed the bonnet lining from that and it made it quite alot louder!

    My S3 came without.. But its still quieter than my golf inside.. Think the S3 has more sound proofing anyways..

    Oh and whatever anyone says removing it will not damage paint etc as alot of people think!

    Looking at my service book it states that month and year of manufacture is 06/07.
    From the VIN number it was built at Ingolstadt.

    Mine is 07/07 Ingolstadt and doesn't have the sound proofing!

    What kind of sense does that make!

    Maybe it's something to do with the colour?

    XPOWER has a silver car and seems to be the only person that has the material under the bonnet.

    Maybe it is to reflect heat away from certain colours.

    Sounds like a longshot but it's a bit odd that cars built before and after XPOWER's don't have it!

    Very funny, completely missed the jab there. :hi:
    Not to worry there are no rattles post operation and is much better dark inside!

    It does make a difference from my view and having sat in the same car which was white (grrr) and was changed to black by the dealer, i can say it looks better with silver trim with everything else being black it makes a real contrast.

    With the white headlining, buckets, silver on the FBMFSW and silver trim the silver was less pronounced than it was post 'operation'. Very chuffed with the inside now.

    I had black on my last S3 with blue alcantara and the new one seems a bit more classy even without the wood trim.

    Agreed Adam, the Aluminim is the better choice for a car like an S3. In Oz you can only get Piano Black or Alum. I got the Alum.

    Cheers

    Mine was one of the first few S3's delivered in Aus (first batch to the country June 07), no sound proofing under the bonnet. Given our **** roads it prbably makes no difference anyway, just adds weight ;) to the car anyhows!
