Okay, so I'm probably going to need to hang on to my bugeye wagon for a couple (many more) years. I understand that it's not a refined, sophisticated car, blah blah blah, but I'm trying to take steps to make it more livable during my commute. So far I've:
- Improved my stereo with a touchscreen HU, iPod integration, etc.
- Reinstalled the stock catback, and sealed it up nicely with fresh gasketing, etc.
I still get the nice turbo whistle, which I don't mind, and if I want to hear the pop and burble of my stage 2 setup, all I have to do is roll down the window.
Still lots of road noise, of course. I'm interested in putting some Dynamat in strategic locations to see if I can help with the sound deadening. Anyone have suggestions about the best places? Doors? Under the carpet? What makes the biggest difference?
Also, any other thoughts about improving the interior? I could install the Bluetooth module that goes with my HU, and tie in to my phone. Any other gadgets along those lines? I might figure out a way to mount my StreetPilot so that it look OEM'ish.
