    Hi all, I am organising a Group Buy on these over on A5OC and given then are a universal fit for A4/S4/RS4/A5/S5/RS5 I have asked the mods here if it would be useful to post here also and got a yes, so here it is.

    I also got confirmation from 034 Motorsport that these will fit the B8.5, even though they only state B8 on their literature.

    I have estimated that with insured shipping from the US, import duty and then insured/tracked shipping within the UK the total price via a group buy would be a worst case of £60. If you were to order direct from the US with shipping costs the total cost all in (including import duty) would be about £80.

    Please post your name below if you are interested and once I hit 10 names then I'll place the order and hold onto the other 15 for latecomers.

    Thanks for reading.

    p.s. Even if you're not interested, take a read of their Installation Instructions :)

    Jeez, now I know where all my old socks go missing!

    One (probably dim question). Is this for manual transmissions only? Reason I ask is I can't see from a cost perspective that Audi would create different mounts for the various box configs.

    Might be worth posting a link to this thread in the A4/A5 relevant B8 sections too.

    Why billet aluminium and not a particular grade of polyurethane? I would have thought the billet might destroy the OEM rubber.

    In the instructions in STEP 3 you will see there is already a billet aluminium tab within the engine mount, but it's smaller so it has more swing space within the rubber damper than the 034Motorsport one.

    The benefit of retaining the rubber rather than going with polyurethane is that it will retain OEM levels of vibration damping, the larger alloy head will just ensure there is less movement in the 'free space', so you wouldn't substitute the alloy piece for poly bushing, you'd only replace the rubber with poly if you wanted track set up.

    Here's the response from 034 Motorsport

    "As for the choice of aluminum over polyurethane, it was because aluminum is better in this application. In this application, the rubber generally fails from shear/extension, which this insert limits. Polyurethane inserts would pack and wear over time in this application, and a metal piece would still be required to limit the up/down movement of the transmission. With this aluminum insert installed, you will actually see an increased lifespan for the rubber used in the transmission mount."

    Looking forward to them arriving Cuppa, many thanks for taking the time to go through the hassle of sorting it all out, at that price it's a very good deal.

    A provisional 20, got going in the end. If you're struggling to shift the last few RS246 may be worth a tap up.

    Cheers Warren. Yes, I'll be posting on rs246 and also audisrs. I'll be ordering 25 to start with and will just keep a thread open and as we get another 25 names just place another order.

    Some more feedback over on Audizine...
