    Well my S3 is pretty early, it's 2000 and the engine code for the early cars was APY. I'll check my gearbox code in a bit but from memory it's EUK.

    The mounts are the same fitment, I put a 6 speed quattro TT mount on my 5 speed Golf years ago.

    I'll say again, the mounts are the same fitment. They will have different part numbers because they are different parts, however they are interchangeable.

    The TT mount is stronger, see the fluted (almost like a heatsink) top face, it is oil filled also so acts almost like a hydraulic damper. I drained the fluid and injected sikaflex in for a stiffer mount.

    No idea Andy, it was about 5 years ago when I did it, for the same reason that my 5 speed mount had cracked, i ended up getting the TT mount by accident...
