How loud is an AC compressor usually? Like, recently it got LOUDER? I hardly use the AC, only when sensitive (un-emo) people ride with me. Heat sensitive people that don't want their hair getting messed up from the sunroof and windows being open.
It hasn't gotten any louder, but it is significatly louder than my 2011 civic si was. It's like a loud buzzing sound, you can hear it pretty good with the windows down. I don't usually use the AC too much either, I like the windows down. Sometimes though I throw on the AC with the windows down just to cool it off a bit on those real humid days.
It's the plastic insert in the hood scoop im talking about, it doesn't shake all the time, just when the wind hits it at odd angles. I'm 6'1" so I can see the top lip of the insert flapping lol.
