    Mine's way quieter than the Mk5 Sporthatch it replaced. Then again I'm not running the junk Goodyear tyres any more either, which makes a BIG difference.

    The NCT5s are awful tyres for noise - oh, and wet weather grip too. lol

    Got no issues with the 1.8 Life road noise wise, but people have flagged noise as an issue with the Sri's before on here.

    My Vectra was noisier with the Pirellis that mine came out the factory with. Had 2 Michelin Pilot Primacy's put on the rear soon after I bought it. They quietened the rear ride considerably.

    Thereafter, I put 2 Fate Advance AR-550's on the Front late last year and had to have another on the rear this February.

    So far very pleased and the tyres are much more silent than the Pirellis.

    Mine had Bridestone Turanzas on from new and they were so noisy that i went out and bought 4 new tyres(Mitchlin premacy's) after only 3000 miles.I sold the Bridestones on Ebay.Now the ride is lovely and quiet.

    That said, I changed TO Bridgestone Turanza. ER300 specifically. Very happy with them.
