    Engine Mounts

    So, I was talking to a friend of mine who has two homologation (sp?) special Vectras and she told me that the exhaust mount snapped on one of them due to excessive movement of the engine.

    Has anyone with a modified S3 experienced excessive engine movement, or are the mounts up to the job of handling 270bhp?

    Mind if I ask how many miles you've done so far with your modified S3?

    Hmm...in that state of tune...perhaps 7000.

    But those aren't motorway miles (no motorways within 90 miles of me!) but proper hard driven back road / 'A' road miles.
