I would do this but I have the magnaflow 16533 waiting to be put on. Guess that wouldn't be a good idea to take it out

Before I tossed the sound deadening in the trash, I went out for a spirited drive to test it out.

No increase in road noise, or exhaust drone. The only drawback is I can hear the tow hook I kept sliding around in the right side oddments tray, over the battery.

Probably just placebo effect, but it felt a tad bit quicker both accelerating and braking.

Green sound deadening? I haven't found any of that in my many adventures throughout my car.... Or are you talking about the stuff you have to remove with a heat gun? Because mine was actually pretty close to tiag silver.

Okay, just so you know there's more of that plus a lot of foam backing attached to the deadening material behind the setback of the rear seat (assuming you have fixed back seat) it easily weighs as much if not more than the rest of it through out the trunk and under the seat bottom combined....

Mine was black btw.

you mean, looks so much better without the tow hook out? When black is clean, it really shows.

My Ride: 3 Series, Q45
Rinsed off dust, took on night drive to get juices flowing, rinsed off again, backed into my assigned space very, very far away from all other spaces, armed alarm. (I wish there was a place to plug in a ****ing battery tender in my garage, just give me one ****ing outlet.)
