We are doing another group buy, currently have 4 out of 5+ people required. Is anybody else interested?

The group buy cost is 325$ USD, instead of the normal 400$USD.

I installed the mount this weekend:)

It took about 1,5 hours and was fairly simple. Remove the skidplate, unscrew and pull the intercooler hose, remove the bolts and pull the old mount out. I did not have a breaker bar and some of the old bolts were very difficult. I succeeded by spraying them with WD40 and using a big torque wrench. Installing the new mount was a piece of cake.

After driving it for some time you really feel the difference. The shifts are much tighter. There is almost zero jerkiness from P to D and back. There is more vibration in the cabin idling in D and you hear more engine noise (which I like). I also have the iPd mount and a DP so that also contributes. I especially like the tightness when manually shifting.

Thanks Pawel! It was worth it!

This is awesome! I am very glad to hear that you like it, and am glad that you happy with the results!

I apologize that I never got to sending you the instructions, but I am very glad to hear that you figured it out! I personally recommend an impact the bolts that attach the mount to the subframe!

Another positive update; I drove the car to Spain (approx 1.500km) and things settled in a bit. The vibration in the cabin idling in D and extra engine noise decreased, while the tightness in the drive-train remained. There is almost no noticeable extra vibration/noise compared with the iPd upper torque mount. Perfect!

I am really happy to hear that all is going well with mount, and that you are enjoying it!
