    When I fitted LCR top mounts the car felt noticeably more 'together' and certainly stiffer. Improved the handling a lot though my top mounts weren't in the best condition.

    I read that as £22 for a set of TWO standard S3 top mounts, or £26 EACH for the LCR ones, so more like a £30 difference?

    It's not a lot of difference though in the grand scheme of things, less than half a tank of fuel!

    My brothers LCR doesn't feel stiffer than my S3, so I'm not sure how much they actually contribute to handling compared to things like shocks/springs/camber/tyre pressures/tyre make etc etc.

    the standerd s3 ones where with bearings and vat at £22 the lcr ones where £26+ vat and then + bearings at about £20 the pair so its a lot more .The psi ones where £40 posted and £8.40 for the bearing so a lot cheaper
