How quiet is your car?

Now that many of us have smart phones and can download a Decibel meter app, how quiet is your car?

I used my EePad with a decibel meter app and checked my SL350 on a 5 mile section of road at 70mph. It obviously depends on the road surface but overall I got 64db

That not bad and quieter than an average city street

Try it? What do you get?

I wAnt to try this when I get to drive my car again in March! It is very quiet compared to most modern cars and it's a 97. There is very little wind noise or road noise, and no engine noise whatsoever normally. And since I got that wheel bearigreplaced there is no grinding, vibrating noise either.
