While this post is back up. Could someone share: Besides under the rear seats and door cards:

Where should one place brownbread and equiv for best soundproofing for ones dollarpound?

The mk3 isn't a quite machine and it's good to know? What sort of weight gain are we talking too? some soundproofing can add a bit too much weight.

Dynamat or similar products is the heavy stuff and is used really where metal is thin and likely to vibrate/resonate.

The brownbread stuff I assume is fairly light.

To answer above then as well as those first two favourites I would look at the bulkhead and front floor and then the boot.
