    S4 Stub mount ?

    I was looking on the APR website and it recommends getting a Stub mount but only lists 2000, 2001, 2002 and my car is 1999 pre face lift.
    Can some one tell me if this would fit my car or did they change it when they did the face lift?
    I have E-mailed then but they have not answered.

    They only got the US spec S4 from 2000.

    Pretty certain the snub mount will fit both pre-facelift and facelift. Have heard it can make the ride in the car pretty harsh as it can stiffen things up a bit too much.

    What's the difference between a snub mount and a drive train stabiliser?

    On a B5 model, means the same thing.

    Ok, A DTS is a different thing to a SNUB mount.

    As far as snub mounts go. I have one, Its nice. If you search my posts you can see what I thought when I done mine.

    But they aim to achieve the same thing?

    Is there any point in fitting both? I get quite a bit of drivetran "shock" under acceleration. I am guessing that either of these would reduce this?

    Get solid aluminium engine mounts.

    Minimal, if any engine / drivetrain movement then.

    As opposed to RS4 mounts if the engine is out? Since there is no give at all in the aluminium mounts, I get the car will be less smooth to drive?
