Things to do with the i10.

Hi guys, first post here!
We recently bought a new facelift i10 as our second car.
While it's a great little car, it does fall short in some areas.
For example, the sound deadening ain't the best, but that's quite normal for this type of car. So I decided to spend some spare time taking apart the door trim and in the footwells.
Work took three and a half hour to complete, and must say I had fun doing so! All very easy to do (anyone can do this).
Result? Well, it's definitely changed something! There is still some road noise, but the tone has changed to a more pleasant deeper noise, and my speakers have gotten new life! It really makes a difference! Will do the rest of the car at another point, but for now I'm satisfied.
Pics below :

Another thing I would like to do is retrofitting a center armrest and sunblinds in the rear.

Also changed all the bulbs to LED bulbs, only ones required resistors was of course the indicators, because of the flashing speed.
Pretty sure I will find other things to do to the little car, so let me hear your plans.

Blimey. I thought the i10 was a quiet car you should try the Toyota Aygo.
I do however like a man who gets stuck in and gets everything exactly as he wants it.
Keep us posted.

Personally, I would have put in a little more effort and simply removed those plastic sheets from inside the doors rather than tear them. I hope you taped them back up or you'll get wet feet and no warranty to repair the leak.

Mine are torn (though not as bad) from when I put in the door locks.

The stuff gets a bit brittle with age. I did tape it with vinyl tape, though.

Do you know any satisfying profanity?!

What materials did you use?

The glue used was pretty tough, so decided just to remove it altogether. Didn't fit a new layer, but might just do this
Materials used is from Stp, and used approximately 110 on it. Bought it off a local car store here in DK.

Hi Losty and a very warm welcome.

Nice effort, but I won't be stripping out the inside of our i10 any time soon lol!

To be honest, I don't think noise is a real issue in our car, indeed it doesn't cause us a problem at all, but if it makes life more comfortable for you, then it can only be a good thing!

Thank you
I do drive 3 different cars regularly, and one of them is a 2015 Mercedes E class, which is of course quite well isolated, so might just have a different take on noise. However, the standard fitted Hankook tires, do seem a bit hard and noisy, especially on rough surfaces. Will change to michelin crossclimate tires by next winter.

Had my Premium SE nearly a month now and don't find it too noisy, busy yesterday and fitted, the Hyundai front and rear rubber mats, wind deflectors, front and rear mudflaps, sill protectors and a Transcend dash cam. I'm really missing a centre arm rest though so if anyone can recommend one would be appreciated.

Tim.

Can't recommend it personally because I haven't bought one, but this could be an option for you:
