    Mike @ Impossible Performance did the ones on my Octavia vRS. I found they transmitted A LOT more noise through the cabin and centre colsole / gearbox area of the car. However it did get rid of a lot of the 'nose dive' of the car.

    I can't remember what brand they are, perhaps give him a call. They might have been the Vibratech ones but it was 2 years ago now.

    OEM ones were fairly soft so got a fair bit of engine movement with 230bhp front wheel drive Octy. So changing all of them really did help. If I remember rightly the mounts were not expensive the labour doubled the cost to fit them. If I remember rightly I think I paid about £100ish for all three mounts plus some fitting but as I said it was 2 years ago.

    Check with someone like Sarah @ Awsome, she might be able to help more as well...
