Suggestions were to insert something like carpet underlay under the carpet in these areas. I thought that would look cheap. The treatment I am looking at ranges between $290-$590 (for the same thing) which applies a 4-5mm layer of a rubber based material to the wheel arches and the underbody. This should give up to 40% reducion in noise so it is claimed.
I don't have the T, but I don't have any excess road noise - however I have premium audio so I probably wouldn't notice if I did! LOL!
