I like the road noise to be less while driving. I had Sound Deadening on my previous car, 2016 Accord EXL, but not on the floors. On this TLX after I installed them on the doors, rear deck and in the trunk, I wanted to go further by also installing them on the floors as well and now the car, is even quieter.

I also installed more welcome lights to have more outside floor lighting. The installation instructions for the welcome lights help me remove all the front panels and the for the center console, I figured it out by removing screws here and there.

I used a 3/8” drive Torx plus TP50 to remove the front seats.

Wow, I wouldn't know where to start on a project like that. Is this something you do at your job or past life? How much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking? Where did you get the materials?

Did you have instructions on how to do the work or was it mostly from past experience? How long did it take you to do?

Nice!

I’ve added sound deadening in previous cars, but nothing as extensive as that. I would not be brave enough to strip the interior like that myself.

Did it make a noticeable difference?

I had sound deadening on my previous cars but I never did the floor until now and It took me around 4h.
