    the only advice i can give from reading up on this is to make sure the engine is supported whilst swapping the mount, and to torque the bolts exactly. Overdoing the tightness can lead to excessive vibration.

    I wouldn't have thought replacing the bolts was necessary though.

    how difficult is it? That'll depend on whether your getting a complete mount with bushes pre fitted or just replacing the bushes in your original mount.

    I'm no mechanic, but did my S3 on axle stands, took about 30 minutes in all.

    I don't remember the ARB getting in the way, maybe the the lower strut brace, I think I used an extension(maybe 2 of them?) on the spanner to get to the bolts over the lower brace?
