    I would like to sound proof my 1.5... Tesla doesn't offer the sound proofing kit any longer. Could anyone recommend an auto shop (in San Francisco Bay Area - South Bay/Peninsula preferred) that is familiar with Roadsters and can help with the installation of sound proofing material? Also, what would be approximate cost for such a job?

    Thanks much.

    Call Rob at Dietschwerks in San Jose.
    I talked to him about it and it's on my list but I had his team upgrade shocks and HIDs first.

    His guys are very competent.

    No, I did not ask for a quote. It should not be too much, if all you want is the floors, firewall and
    you stick with the Dynamat lite. I would give Laurent a call: 408-725-4243
    Most of the remaining noise is tire noise that comes in from the doors. Quieter tires will make
    a huge difference, at the cost of poorer handling. If you rarely push the car hard, it may be
    the cheapest way to reduce noise.
