The dealer supplied another set which I installed.......can't say I noticed any difference in road noise and I believe that the road surface has more to do with the road noise than anything else (assuming the same tires). The round body plugs should have been installed at the assembly plant, but if missing should definitely be replaced/installed.
How do you know if they're missing?
