    Im back with the car in the garage, earlier than expected but, i can get on with the next phase in the build. Im starting on the suspension and brake upgrades for when the supercharger will be installed later on, and will start with changing and freshning up bushes and mounts, firstly the snub mount.

    Having looked on other sites there seems to be a divide between manufacturers like APR, Neuspeed etc. Has anybody here fitted one of these? Im wanting to know which is best to look at, but also seeing some stuff that they add vibration/feeling thru the car which i would prefer to avoid.

    Also hear some people have fitted the standard RS4 mount and find it fine, is it that much better than a standard A4 unit??? P.S What is the correct name for the mount here, snub mount seems to be a yank term and i cant find anything here. Any links would help too, cheers.

    I've joined the throng of people adding the RS4 snub mount rubber and....... I can't say anything about it as it's in the boot of the car as I've not had time to fit it. :(

    Cheap upgrade though and feels hugely more sturdy than the stock item

    about 15 quid iirc

    Its just more substantial, more rubber and less air.

    Are you thinking of doing the rear ran aswell as they look a bit feeble and I wondered if we could fit rs4 ones as a lot of rs4 owners uprate there's so the second hand one should be cheap

    Pretty much nearly all in the suspension/drivetrain that i can find really, going to work my way thru them.

    Car is fine, but these will be kicking on 14yr old now, and want everything tight for when the supercharger is fitted, more strain on these parts.

    Any info you get stick in here if you want!

    I'm after doing the same as cheap as possible as funds are tight and they are a big heavy car and like you say 11 year old bushes and suspension etc, even worse as my last car was fully Polly bushed and coilovers and only weighed 800kg with 230 bhp

    I have a red one in mine.... cannot recall the name of it for the life of me,lol

    I am going to refresh the whole back end of bushes in mine soon, as my track session at combe showed the weeknesses of the current ones in under a lap.

    On the road it feels fine, but i can not do her any harm nailing decent OEM bushes on.

    I am going to leave the engine mounts and that as they are for now as the lump doesnt move too much and the transfer of whines and vibrations is awful on stiffer mounts

    Thats my reasoning also, plan on tracking the car at times and would prefer to prep it first than slowly wear things away and have to keep doing wkend jobs repairing them.

    Some parts i will source uprated items, only if it will help. As for mounts etc, i'd rather not introduce too much extra stiffness thru the car as it is a road car firstly!

    I can provide all the numbers and prices tomorrow at work. The RS4 mount is rock solid compared to the standard one. other uprated items arent sold in this country anymore so import only.

    If Jason gets us the numbers, we will stick it, or at least tag it in the sticky thread up top, ( saves clutter)

    I'm liking this thread as I'm looking to do the same I think it is probably the best mod for our decade old B5's.

    Its like giving our cars Viagra before they hit the track lol.

    The RS4 snub mount is also used, as standard, on various other VAG models including Skoda Superb, Passat Syncro and various other 6-cylinder Audi's.

    Should only be sub-£10 as well, so not an expensive part.

    Its used on the big Diesel V6's, which is why its cheap and doesnt have RS tax applied.

    Petrol V6's use a different soggier part.

    The rs4 snub is cheaper but 034 would be good the the engine, diff, transmission mounts just always worry getting stung on import duty

    I don't think import duties will be much I got charged £180 on the FT kit which was around $1100.

    Yeah but it makes something that's cheap to the same as buying an up rated uk one, ideal if your going out there on holiday and bring back as hand luggage

    import tax wont be to bad especially if a big order is places. I dont think there are many parts that you can get in the uk that come close to some of the 034 parts imo
