Hey guys, I dunno what's goin on with my car. The inside all of a sudden just seemed a lot louder than usual. I used to remember my car being very quiet on the inside (even after all the exhaust mods and other stuff). <p>Not quite sure how to explain a sound, but it sounds like a low droning noise. Kinda hurts your ears after a while. It doesn't seem like it's affected by RPM or anything. I've stepped on it to see if it gets louder, but not. Not the AC either, turned that off and on and it's still there. It usually starts when the car is hot and I go over 40 mph. And the sound would die down if I go slower. It's also coming from the lower passenger side of the engine bay, but I don't know what's down there since our engine bay is so compact. Any thoughts? Thanks thanks! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I am starting to wear out on the tires a bit, but I don't think it's that. Like when I turn on my car and listen, I already hear that low droning sound, but just very soft. (Like I can hear that sound standing right in front of my car (lower passenger side) but can't inside. Only start hearing it when I get above 40 mph)
