Any recommendation for pre-facelift 1.8T S3?

I'm eyeing up Awesome GTI's uprated ones at the minute for £155.00

I have THS mounts... they are ok but getting tired I think... they are still better than the OEM ones I had but then they were new...

Vibratechnics would be my choice next time around...

I've been seriously looking and reading around about mounts recently and I think I will certinally be spending the extra to go to vibratecnics ;)

Thanks Tuffty. Ordered and paid for from awesome. Glad to hear that someone is running them. They are the ones that i have just bought for £155. 50% reduction in engine movement apparently and is much needed.

It would seem that my engine has literally been having a disco under the bonnet and almost worn through pipework since my clutch/hybrid went in. I'm amazed that few have uprated to these essentially parts already when running more power.

I think they are quite hard so would vibrate a lot through the car but poly bushes (from what I have read at least) are not as good in the engine bay as rubber ones...

Those vibra technics ones are mad money!!

034 seem a little better priced. I'm in the market for some new ones but the dude in Aus reckons VF Engineering are the go. He can get them discounted at $500 for a set inc. the dogbone. The Vibra Technics ones are more than that for just the top two !

Those THS ones look even better value. Might have to order a set of them!

anyone know how long the THS mount would last till they need replacing? i have had then for almost 2 years now(about 20.000klm's) and it seems that they need to be changed again, because i have alot of engine movement, and tbh when i first installed them i didnt notice a huge difference from oem, just a little bit stiffer.my car is only mapped.. ;)

I have the same issue mate... my THS ones are feeling a little loose.... I am gonna have a look at them in a couple of weeks when I have some time off work and might Sikoflex the voids to tighten them back up a bit... will be saving for Vibratechnic ones in the meantime as I am not getting another set of THS for my setup....

i was wondering how i could stiffen them back up abit, could you maybe pm me any tips?
the Vibratechic ones seem good but i thing they are an overkill for a road car.. ;)

I'll find out what type of Sikalflex it is... I think its the 221 stuff here...
Sikaflex 221 Adhesive & Sealant 300ml

I can't find a pic of a mount to show you but will be posting pics obviously if and when I do it myself....
