    I drove my car to the Motor Trend New car show in Baltimore on Friday, and I had the stroller in the trunk, so I had to stowage cover folded back, and my wife told me that I needed to get my hearing checked because I kept asking her to repeat what she was saying. In my opinion, there is a lot of resonance back there and not enough sound deadening to keep the exhaust noise from coming in. I already Dynomated the tailamp panel metal area, this summer I am removing all of the trim and carpet in the trunk and finishing the job. So yes, I do think it makes a noticeable difference.

    That's pretty typical of any car that is a hatchback design. There is just no barrier between the passenger compartment and the trunk, so they are naturally going to be noiser. Not just exhaust but rear tire/road noise as well.

    My 02 SS convertable was 10 times quieter in the passenger compartment than my wifes 00 SS T-top. Both cars had the exact same exhaust system too. The difference is the convertable passenger compartment being completely closed off from the trunk.

    Good to know, i'll have to figure something out. Person before me put a bass system in the back. They spent over 3k on that system for sure as it's all custom done and lights up nicely, but I have virtually zero trunk space.

    Funny story, the original installers punctured the top of the gas tank drilling in the screws too far. Cost me a lot of money for someone elses stupidity. Can't complain though, got that ws6 at 13,500 when it only had 27k miles.
