    Hi guys, seen a few threads about engine mounts and i plan on buying some "cheap"/non oem ones and filling then with the pouring rubber or poly or whatever its called, but theres loads of different mounts listed for all the different models :( i seen a thread by S3dave and he fitted 5 speed ones, but they say they wont fit my car :/ which is a 51 S3 AMK. So my question is do all the mounts differ greatly or can i get away with the 5 speed ones? Thanks!!!!!

    Also... there are two types of 5 speed box... the 02J used on FWD A3's and the 02M which was used on A3 quattro's... the 02M 5speed is a variant of the 6 speed 02M used in the S3

    Where are you buying the mounts from thats made it this confusing?

    As Prawn has mentioned though, physically all 1.8t mounts are the same... there may be subtle differences between the numbers which could be differing stiffness's etc but other than that they will all fit..

    Just on ebay, items listed as S3 8L engine mount 210hp, but then the part number they list is for a 5 speed 150hp aum or something, then when you ask they say oh no that wont fit yours you need this... Thats conveniently 3 times the price. Thanks though, i guess i need to buy the stiffest i can, giggidy.
