    Not trying to be funny, but there's loads of posts and feed back on this subject, search 'dogbone mount'.
    There's a few write ups on this including a few posts by myself.

    got the dog bone mount or uprated bushes cant fault it at all infact it made the exhaust system sound louder from inside the car (at standard still). I recommend it for the money.

    Fair enough mate, the Powerflex Dogbone Mount I have fitted on my car cost me something like 20 delivered, and I fitted it along with a mate and a couple of Axle stands in 30 minutes. You only need to replace the rubber parts as shown in the pic of the ebay link, so I see no point in buying the complete thing for 55+12 Postage unless you have broken the metal parts.

    Hope that helps.

    You get 2 bushes with Powerflex items, it recommends you fit them both, and swop one of them back to OE bush if it's too harsh, I've got both fitted on mine. The correct torque setting are important for fitting, so you need a torque wrench.
