    Hey guys !
    I have been searching for a detailed guide how to soundproof / soundeaden your doors and couldn't really find something detailed enough.
    So I made a DETAILED video myself, should be enough for an avarage user and also added links for the materials I used in the description of the video:


    Gotta say that if my sound system was about 7/10 now I would rate it about 9/10 !
    Feel free to leave comments if anything is unclear :)
    Enjoy !

    Great video! Will be using it when I pick up my new car!

    I've used the same stuff on my current 290 for the rear bench and boot. Wanted to do the doors but never got round to it.

    Also wanting to do the rear wheel arches.

    Glad that you like it !
    Keep in mind that each door takes about 2-4 hours (1st door took me 4 hours and the 2nd took me 2 hours cause I already knew what to do) though I am sure it will take less time when you do it with the video (I had to figure everything myself)
    Let me know if you get any bumps on the way that I didn't mention in the video ;)

    A tip for the clips - they actually set in 2 stages, and if you look carefully them you can see an area between the two 'discs' at the back of them. Wedge a trim tool in there and that'll pop them apart slightly, lining up the white bits at the other end up into a point. Then when you bang them back in it squeezes the discs together and splays the white tip out locking them. This is how you get the ones stuck in the door out without breaking them.

    I am getting lots of messages about the glue type and how to make the sponge to stay put..
    Ask from a local store next to your place for a glue who can glue acoustic sponge to plastic and (if needed in your country) be able to resist high tempertures.
    Cut the sponge as you like it's not an exact science .. my advice - cut it about 1 inch bigger than the shape you need and then just squeeze it in.
    Good luck guys let me know if you have any more questions !
