      Because the stock mounts are very soft.
      Being the owner of our 2.5T Project car, I can tell you first hand how much of an improvement mounts made on this car.
      The stock mounts were designed to be 100% pedestrian with zero performance in mind.

      Nice! How much of an improvement over just the insert? (stage 2 insert vs. stage 2 mount)

      Early TSI engine should use this mount: http://store.blackforestindustries.c...k4mk54cy1.html
      '09+ TSI engines should use this mount: http://store.blackforestindustries.c...pasienmos.html
      The '09+ version requires slightly different hardware to be used with the mount.

      Great just installed a stage 1 trans mount insert yesterday and just saw the above pic. Looking into getting the motor mount. You guys recommend mating my stage 1 insert with a stage 1 motor mount or can I do stage 2?

      You could do either, really.
      If you want more 'comfort' go with a Stage 1 engine mount.
      If you want more 'performance' go with a Stage 2 engine mount.

      What is the benefit of replacing the trans mount vs just putting the BFI insert in the stock mount?

      The full replacement mount provides more bushing surface area to not only increase performance, but also absorb more engine vibrations which translates to a better 'ride' characteristic.
      The insert is an excellent <$100 modification, but if you're looking for the best performing solution - especially if your Mk5/6 is highly modified - then the complete replacement mount is the way to go.

      Here's good reason to replace your trans inserts.. 130k of daily driving means your stock insert is smooshed.

      Thinking about getting all three stage 1 mounts/insert. When will you have the torque arm insert in stock? Your site doesn't let me add it to the cart.

      Also, PM me if there is any special forum pricing

      '09+ Stage 1 inserts are scheduled to be back in stock within the week.
      '05-'08 inserts are in stock and ready to ship.

      i've had the stage 2 mounts (trans insert) for about 2 years and they're worth every penny. At SoWo i picked up the full stg 2 trans mount. after a couple weeks with the full mount in i can honestly say it makes a huge difference with the dsg shifts. they are so much more crisp and smoother than even with just the insert. well worth the upgrade.

      I know you want to sell product and regardless I always buy stuff from you guys. So I have a question, right now I have the stage. 2 motor mount and stage 2 trans insert for my mk5 GLI. Prior to buying that from u guys, I had a energy suspension dog bone insert, I'm thinking about swapping that out for the stage 2 insert u guys offer. Am I really looking at any noticeable difference regardless of the sale?

      We offer only a single 'stage' torque arm insert MK5 vehicles from model year '05.5 to '08.
      See here: http://store.blackforestindustries.com/bfitoarmin.html

      This torque arm insert is made of 90a durometer polyurethane. Compare your existing torque arm insert harness to this number to determine if what we're offering is stiffer then what you have.

      They should be available soon; expected 1-2 weeks.
      The mounts are available for pre-order, so you may want to consider paying for them ahead of time.
      Several customers have already pre-paid and when these are in high demand, it's not uncommon to sell out during pre-order.

      For your build, we suggest Stage 2 mounts.
      There will be some vibrations, but that's the way it goes when you're making that kind of power over stock.
      You could combine a Stage 2 engine side with a Stage 1 transmission side, if you're worried about vibes.

      Thanks Pete, might go with the 2&1 idea, will be ordering a column pod & gauge as well, to make the shipping more economical.
