      Scott... we think you will love the .5's after a little time with them but if not here is another option that we just released:


      Brand new, just released from Black Forest are these stealthy updgrade options for your spiritedly driven daily vehicle. These mounts are specifically engineered to fall in between new factory mounts and our popular .5 Mounts. These are constructed from solid gravity cast polyurethane and NOT made from rubber like the factory pieces. This will ensure an extremely long product life that will not break down like rubber, while still giving added performance with factory-like comfort preserved. All necessary hardware is included!


      What's the shore hardness on these? I may be doing a mount replacement for a friend & think these may be the ticket.
      Gone & dearly missed: 1997 GTI VR6 in Windsor Blue
      Current: Red 2002 Focus SVT (Planned replacement: Mk7 GTI), 2012 Routan SE in white

      So far the .5's NVH is something I can live with. As the weather warms up the initial start up rumble goes away after about 30 seconds. At a stop, a throttle blip still has a bit of 'grainyness', but once under way it is almost negligible. Certain constant throttle RPM's do have a bit of extra feedback through the steering wheel and chassis.
      BUT...
      Handling characteristics and a more planted feel are definitely improved, and I like the way car drives and feels, as well as puts it's power down under WOT. It all just feels more of a piece now. Granted the stock mounts where all shot...
      So all that being said, it is an upgrade that I can live with happily, and the trade off is mostly minimal. The wife did ask if the car was supposed to feel 'that way' after they where installed, but that was the only comment she made. I think she is resigned to my cay care not being the 'plush' one of the home fleet...
      All I got for now till upcoming track day at PIR or Pacific Raceways in May.

      Cheers!

      These mounts are specifically machined for use in Corrado VR6's and all Mk3's.
      Due to differences in hardware, we do not offer a Passat specific kit at this time.

      If your issue is in fact being caused by worn out motor mount s then yes, our BFI mounts will correct your issue. Worn out engine mounts are the cause of many odd noises, bumps, clunks, and the infamous wheel hop.
      BFI mounts are an excellent upgrade, whether you are experiencing these things or not [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Even brand new stock mounts are sloppy. They were never designed with performance in mind

      So ran at Portland with the BMW club last weekend, and the mounts where great!
      Rock solid and really helped keep the nose on track without the usual engine slop.
      City driving has really been great as the mounts have settled down and they feel just fine. A touch over stock NVH, but the general feel is OEM 99% of the time now.
      Vid of my 3rd session of the day.
      Added a new H&R 28mm hollow 3 way rear sway bar that was a money addition too!
      Cheers!

      Hi!
      I just got the BFI .5
      They were awesome comparing to stock. My engine mush more smoother when i drop down a gear.
      However those said that they are shaking ? What the hell, i feel not shake not bucking or something like that. They are just awesome.
      I Think i need harder kit as well, i will probably sell them this year, and i will order the stage 1 or stage 2 kit.
      Thanks you BFI
      Quality product!!!

      Put some stage 1s in my vr yesterday and put about 100 miles on them. The vibration is very minimal compared to the stock mounts that had 120k on them... Overall I am pleased with my new mounts!

      hey guys i grabbed a stage 0.5 set from you guys at h2o. I am wondering would you reccomend these for a 400whp VRT or should i go with the stage 1 kit. I dont really mind some vibration but i will def stay away from your Delrin versions. Let me know what you think


      edit i have yet to install them, the car is in shambles
