My daily commute is 70kms to and fro from my office which includes 60% highway and 40% city and i consistently get an average of 23.5 to 24 kmpl tankfull method (AC on 50% of the time). This is really amazing. Did not expect FE this high. Yes most of my drive is done sedately.
Brakes are excellent and inspire confidence.
NVH- This is something that's bugging me for a while. While going to office at 12:00 in the afternoon, i do not notice the NVH and it seems at par with competition. No issues at all here. However when i am returning at aroung 9.30 in the evening, it seems a totally different car and NVH intruding inside cabin gets loud. Even with music i can hear the idtec roaring.
Used an app from Bocsh from playstore for recording noise values and found NVH in cabin to be around 60dB near firewall whereas other parts of cabin are at 56dB. Have been thinking of getting some damping done but I am not very sure and need your feedback on it.
I have beeen through you damping DIY and wanted to ask if I damp the bonnet lid, doesnt the noise get pushed towards firewall more? As per my analysis most of the noise in cabin is from firewall so wanted to know if damping floor, and bonnet lid would be effective.
What i dont want to do is remove the dash and damp the firewall. ASS
dont do it and getting it done outside might mot be as perfect and some other rattles may creep in.
How is your car NVH after damping when u drive at night?
Appreciate if you can provide your observations.
