    I've found a GB for MKIV platform vibratechnic engine mounts but I'm unsure if they're a worth while buy? They're the revised revision as I've heard the old ones could cause problems with cabin vibration? What are people's thoughts on them and what improvements would I expect?

    Vibras have been fine on mine, i dont think it seems overly harsh or lots of vibration
    Even when i took you out on the track last year i was running them

    I have run them for a year or so and they're awesome. Car feels a lot more connected with them fitted, and with no more vibration etc. I initially ran a powerflex bushed dogbone but have since switched to a VF Engineering dogbone which is a fair bit stiffer.

    Not sure it's worth waiting that long for?? Go on Vortex and find a bargain. I got a brand new one for $100 from memory.

    Powerflex, superpro and vibratechniks now do the small bush for the std dog bones... powerflex also have a 'black' range that are stiffer...
