Road noise.

Asked by Oct 29, 2013 at 06:41 AM about the 2012 Audi A5 2.0T Premium Cabriolet

Question type: General

I am experiencing what I consider to be excessive road noise from my A5. I've just changed from a 520d which was almost silent at 80 m.p.h. Any comment please?

Maybe it's time for new tires.

Did your mechanic or you put too much air in the tires ? Over inflated tires will cause more road noise to enter the cabin due to the lack of "cushioning" that is created by the tire sidewall which not only provides a smooth ride but also quiets the road noise (remember tires are rubber and rubber is a silencer material) .
