    Just curious, why are you guys concerned abt the car noise from the outside ,because even a BMW rattles like a indica from outside :D.
    BTW any solutions to make the car less audible from the inside

    Yes. Get all the four doors damped and the NVH will surely reduce.

    Jokes apart - you can get all the doors, including the hatch dampened, as Paddleshifter suggested. You can even get the floor and the roof dampened for even better results. The idea behind the noise levels in the engine bay is to understand the difference in noise levels between petrol and diesel, between older diesels and newer diesels, etc.

    I've taken a ride in PaddleShifter's car on more than one occasion and the damping is definitely doing its job well.

    Although we all know diesel clatter is the most irritating part of the diesel cars, do we have the data as to how much noise levels are permitted for the cars. Any ARAI guidelines available?

    For all I know Punto diesel noise is much lower than Liva or Figo or Indica's. Thats why I chose Punto above all.

    ^^ That was just a joke. They are industrial ear plugs, typically worn near very noisy machinery and makes you almost deaf :D
