      Keep in mind though...poly anything can be prone to rattles and squeaks along with the added stiffness.

      I have the poly vf motor mounts and I kind of want to go back to the oem..

      And on my mk4 when I went from oem to poly on the dogbone it made a big difference I felt like I was in a paint shaker

      My buddy ran after market dogbone in his old 20th and within a year or so it felt like isht. Put a new oem back in and drove like new again.

      I just went full OCD filling rock chips on the front of the Porsche. It started with painting the windshield channel, then started taking care of the big chips on the bumper...before I knew it I had been going at it 2 hours, and my back is cramping like crazy . At least the car is uni-black now...might have about a thousand tiny nubs from paint chips, but it is at least black.

      This leaves me out. Point taken though.

      They look almost too good to put on. Now I just need to clean all the adhesive off the rockers and slap them back on.

      yeah, i had the poly bfi stage2 motor mounts, & they sucked. but the mk3 oem mounts suck too, so i was pretty much screwed either way i think poly strut mounts A: don't exist, and B:, would have no advantages over oem rubber (unless you consider squeaking a benefit). just go with the oem ones.

      these are my 2 runs from last night, about what i expected i was spinning my tires all the way until second gear, & i haven't had a chance to practice my launches yet, so i still don't know what works yet, & my car still isn't tuned right, it's running pretty rich. my reaction time was better on the second run, but i missed a shift. i'm a dragstrip n00b
      i'm going to throw the turbo kit on it this week & see how it does. oh, i'm car 588..y'know, the slowest car
      f**k it, i don't care if my car isn't fast, i had fun
