The car is sort of naturally noisy, I've discovered.
You'd need to invest in good bushings and spring isolators to really quiet these cars down.
My car was quiet for about a month after I got my Ecsta 4X tires and as they are wearing it's just getting noisy again.

If you're not afraid of summer tires, I would recommend Sumitomo HTRZ II. I had them on my old Mustang and they are very quiet tires and perform very well above their price range. Treadwear isn't so great, but luckily they are low-cost.

What other people think of me is none of my business.
