    At £120 a pair it'd have been tempting.

    At £240 it wouldnt!

    Vibratechnic mounts are brilliant. Use them on my Escort and had them on both my Fiestas.

    Guys, there's a chap on audi Srs which had a set of upgraded o34 Motorsport engine/diff mounts and he reported increased noise and vibrations after fitting so much so they are for sale in the classifieds ! Manufacturer's spend a lot of money in R&D to get the best compromise between performance and comfort so i would go with a tried and tested rs4 engine mount...

    pussy!
    I am on my way to being fully poly or solid bushed. suspension/rear subframe/drivetrain is done.

    have a full set of 034 engine, front subframe and transmission mounts (1.8tqs) that I had considered selling as I need the cash but I will only end up buying them again

    if you have ever seen your car on a dyno with the bonnet open you will realise how much your engine moves.
    mine must have lifted a good 4" at WOT.

    couple that with any uprated power or handling and I cant see the point not too. OEM ones are just too soft IMO. built for comfort not performance.

    And RS4 mounts retail at silly money now, they're up to £100 each iirc.

    034 does the street/track density mounts for $100 each, so in reality thats the ballpark these need to be in for them to be competitive.

    Ed, see Mathias posts on audi srs, he's put he's stuff up for sale and also andreea was complaining of funny handling at high speed on motorways and last time i've been abroad the italian and german motorways were much, much better than uk roads ! If the rs4 mounts are 100 quid each then it makes sense to buy aftermarket, last time i bought them they were 60 quid each !

    Retail is £105 + vat each

    if we get 10 people its less 20%...

    for a big improvement and only a massive increase in % costs of the RS4 mount I would be happy with that.
