    Tires. Crummy tires will increase road noise.

    That's... about it.

    Re: make m car quieter.

    The main item to replace (as mentioned earlier above me) that should reduce the racket to a degree is tires. Tires that are designed for performance driving will be firmer and thus transmit more noise into the cabin. Since we're on the subject of tires make sure they are in good shape and condition since defective or broken rubber will transmit more noise as well. Unfortunatley other than tires theres not much more you could do to quiet the car down save selling the impala and getting a luxury oriented car

    How far are you willing to go to make the car quieter?

    The ones that are suppose to make your car more efficient....
    Will that help in anyway?

    Well aren't you the cheery new member here? Something tells me you'll be Gone In 60 Posts.

    Meanwhile, enjoy being crabby.

    And get some $20 hearing protectors. Will cut noise by 10 dB.
