has anyone removed the underbonnet sound deadening from there astra ?

is it worthwhile ?

i have a gsi bonnet but the sound proofing covers the vents so cant see much point in it

should i junk it ?

I only removed mine for one reason. Heat.

Removing it would help letting out some induction noise and lower some temps, but tbh inless you really need to then i wouldnt remove it.

I think i'll be putting mine back on soon, as ive pulled my outside air temp sensor into my bonnet so i can keep an eye on it on really warm days, seeing as weather is cooling down a bit now i think ill be putting mine back on :)

If you want more cold air in/heat out you can take the plastic black panel of the back of the vents.

I removed both one my old Gsi my new one doesnt have vents yet but the sound proofing has been removed. Saves a bit of weight as well.

Are you not able to just cut the proofing a bit on each side to allow the GSI vents to work??
