    So ive finally rebuilt the entire suspension on the s3 down to the last bolt and now looking at doing the brakes and body but i want to change thw engine mounts.
    After seeing jardo change his mounts to standard ones and tiger seal them it made me think, do i do the same and buy brand new mounts and tiger seal them or buy aftermarket ones?

    Im looking at buying these for the engine and gearbox mounts:

    Q-Drive Audi | Car Parts 4 Less UK’s No.1 Car Parts Retailer

    Are they a good make? Also im planning on buying a new dog bone mount and using the yellow poly bush and the purple circle bush to fully polybush it, all in all the 3 mounts and bushs will cost just over £100, less than what one aftermarket mount will be.

    What you guys think?

    I have Tigger seal mounts on mine

    Seam to cope well with over 500 bhp and vibration wasn't that bad

    Aren't they a bit bouncy

    in all seriousness, I am probably going to be doing something to my engine mounts in the near future as mine, especially the gearbox one, are close to being useless so it'll be interesting to see the responses..

    One mount is still dearier than all 3 mounts though mate, you think they would make that difference and be worth the extra £££?

    Cheers mate, as said though is it worth the extra cash over the standard ones with tiger seal in them?

    At my power level or for occasional track use most determinately... for a road car with one track day a year and less than 300 hp its debatable...

    There will of course be a little more vibration in the cabin but the engine feels soooo connected

    It's true, they make the car feel very connected. I have VT mounts plus a VF dogbone (which is stiffer).

    I can't find all the details of the GB as there are a few options but I'll find out tomorrow. For just the two engine mounts it's £230 inc VAT and delivery.
