Im getting my sounds system replaced currently, so I asked all these questions also and thats the answer I heard, paraphrasing it here just.

Yes, but I've opted out of insulating the entire floor, it's just too much work. What I've come to realize is that the roads around where I live are REALLY rough, in order to withstand both the climate and the high levels of traffic (I live just outside Oslo in Norway). Recently I drove on some mountain roads that were built for way less traffic and it was almost silent in comparison. I actually measured the dB level, and the sound level at 110km/t on those mountain roads was the same as at 60km/t on my local roads.

So the road surface has a big impact on the sound level. And the worst roads (which apparently is what I have around me) is probably really difficult to insulate against.

Turns out the rear tire walls are only barely touching the inner lining, so no need to roll the fenders. - It also rubs very rarely, so will see if it wears off, or will consider going down to 255 in the rears.

Your car is gorgeous!!!!

I have the same car /colour combo but I love your mods!

It might be a silly question, with the mods, would BMW (if anything went wrong) give you a 'goodwill' gesture for repairs or wouldn't you bother going to them? I have had a few issues with mine and its currently there for a gearbox shunting/juddering issue.

Thanks

Thank you!

If I had a problem that were clearly caused by my own modifications, I would not try to get that fixed under warranty. I would likely still go to BMW to get it fixed, as I have a very good relationship with my local dealership.

If I had problems that were not directly related to my mods, I would not expect problems at the dealership - but your experience may be different based on your relationship to the dealership and how mod friendly the dealer is.
