  1. Applied CRC silicone grease to all door seals, but unfortunately did not notice any difference in wind or road noise.
  2. Thanks! Iโ€™ll definitely try applying grease then.
  3. Thanks for sharing! I wonder how much an effect does silicon spray produces in regard to road noise. Is it really that noticeable?
  4. My Corolla is a 1.8 hatchback, so also a pretty small boot.
  5. Woah, I did not expect that at all. Havenโ€™t test driven it myself, and now Iโ€™m curious.
  6. Too bad the only Lexus model comparable to Corolla is Lexus UX, and it has no Apple CarPlay or Android auto, and generally inferior media and hvac controls ๐Ÿ˜ž
  7. Perhaps that's due to an acoustic glass present on that model. I'm still not sure if mine has it, because there are no such markings on the glass itself, but the local toyota website says all models in Finland come with "Noise canceling membrane on the windshield", whatever that means.
  8. Well, I've tried almost everything... Got a complete 2-layer sound deadening of the wheel arches, boot, front floor, 4 doors, tailgate and bonnet. Got soft, studless winter tyres that rate the quietest on the market. Replaced summer Falken tyres with the softest and quietest tyres as well. The car is quieter than before, but still very loud on any road that's less than perfect. The last thing I might try is adding door seals as described by @parkerbol in another thread. But, to be honest, I've lost hope. I believe Corolla is the noisiest car I've driven (I've driven Honda Jazz, Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-30, Opel Grandland X, Toyota Camry, VW Passat, Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, Skoda Octavia, Kia e-Niro, Kia Ceed). Maaaaybe Kia Ceed estate was as noisy as Corolla. This is my only complaint about the car though. But hell, it's pretty uncomfortable and headache inducing. I have a 60km highway work commute every day, and I'm definitely not looking forward to sitting in an airplane for half an hour each evening after work... ๐Ÿ˜ž
  9. Same, I'm surprised how differences in my driving styles do not correspond to different fuel consumptions. I recently had a "sporty" drive on country roads in sport mode, and got 4.7 l/100km (60 uk mpg). My overall mpg (4500km on the odo) is 5 l/100km (56.5 uk mpg). Btw, I've heard it's supposed to even get better after first 5000-6000 km (engine break in?).
  10. Anyone knows if these trip records stored in the cloud and synced to both devices?
  11. My 1.8 Hatchback (MY2021) doesn't have any markings on the glass, but the regional Toyota website says "Noise canceling membrane on the windshield" is standard across all Corollas in Finland.
  12. To be fair, non-acoustic glass often also has two pieces with a layer in between. That layer is simply made from a different material in the acoustic variant.
  13. Yup, exactly that. Haven't had a chance to test that system.
  14. Yeah, I meant rough, no idea what iOS autocorrection did there... ๐Ÿ˜„
  15. Great to hear that! (See what I did there? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) How about coubik tarmac: is the noise the same as with your previous tyres, or better too?
