What kind of sound you are referring too. My deskboard has a little bit of sound emitting from it. But other area is fine. I install my door panel with RAAMAT sound mat. so it really help kill out all noise. The rear board, I put in extra sponge to keep it from moving. So, no problem at all.

Mat is better effect than the foam. But combine both yield even better results. :)

For what I'd experienced, if I leave my Coupe under the sun for quite some time, it will emit all those plastic sounds as if the plastic had touched each other after they expand from the heat they absorbed.
Coupe is not suitable to be under the sun. I have two tiny little cracks on my dashboard already.

Guys,
BS was refering to the rear hatch lock hinges. Some of the coupe might emitted some annoying sound. The rear desk board can contribute to some sound also when it bounce up and down. I use extra sponge to hold it.

BS,
Photo shot you are better lah..
