Well, here goes: Although it's been built last saturday, I won't get my A3 3.2 manual gbx for quite a few more days. The wait has been long, very very long, but it gave time to read about stuff available, or soon to be available, for the 3.2. Below is a picture of a VF -Engineering pendulum mount. This replaces one of the three original rubber mounts that tie the engine and transmission to the body of the car. Installing this billet aluminum and poly insert piece in lieu of the spongy rubber original should seriously reduce the engine/trans' movement upon acceleration and deceleration which should in turn translate into a more direct application of torque to the wheels, as well as easier shifting near redline. As with all mods, there is a downside. In this instance vibrations from the engine will be less filtered out. Just how much, I will soon find out. I called VF-E in California and ordered this piece today. It ships Fed-Ex economy next week and will get here (France) a bit later. As soon as it arrives, it's going on the car. I'll take pictures and post a writeup of my impressions. Cheers!
