      I ordered and received mine within about seven days. Very fast shipping for coming from Sweden!

      Now I'm itching to put them in...

      Obviously not an R, but this guy was running them and they held flawlessly.

      that's exactly correct slight vibration revving passed 1k and thats it.

      i have a set for sale used about 9k miles... daily driven and never beat on my car is NA and i want it to last forever...lol. My honest opinion is they definitely give less vibration than say a "track" set of mounts, however you will notice more of the transmission noise coming thru a little higher pitched (which is good or bad depending on taste i guess). As for performance and doing their job movement-wise, they are top notch and feel planted and great...shifting always felt solid with zero slop.

      PM me an offer if interested... i'll be taking pics and posting a thread hopefully tomorrow!

      I've got a set of DLI mounts on the way (sick deal in the classifieds). If I re-use the bolts to install them which is better:

      1) Use Loctite when I install them, torque to spec, done

      2) No Loctite, torque to spec, check/tighten after 500 miles

      I didnt use loctite but arent they stretch bolts? I'd just buy new bolts from an ace hardware or something like that.

      Hmm, is a torque wrench necessary or can you just tighten the bejesus out of them with some loctite?

      One last question... do you reuse bolts from the stock mounts? What size are they if the best idea is to replace them? I bought mine used and I only was given the four bolts that attach to the round cylinders. Thaaanks

      I've got mine sitting in a box in the back of my R. VERY fast shipping from Sweden. I received my set in eight days. I'll update with impressions after I install them later this week.

      They had more specific bolts if I remember though you could reuse the stretch bolts in a pinch.

      My results have not been as good as others. There is much more gear whine coming through. Letting off the gas, im still getting an unnerving clunck from the transmission side. I just replaced my my year old inserts on my vf dogbone mount and that barely lessened the movement. All bolts were checked and retorqued after a few hundred miles. Would lose subframe bolts do this? If I leave my car in gear while parked there is no movement whatsoever when I rock the car, unlike with my worn stock mounts.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Basically everything you're experiencing is what I experienced from day 1 until now. The gear whine is just something you'll have to get used to (read my post HERE, towards the bottom under "Long Term Update"). From what I can gather the clunk is one of three things: The dual mass flywheel shifting back and forth under/out of load, the strut mounts, or the subframe. I've been waiting literally months for H2Sport to restock their mount collection so I could complete my front end overhaul, getting moderately annoyed at the wait now.

      Other than that the mounts are rock solid. You can try my suggestion for alleviating the gear whine in my post, but other than that just keep in mind this is the result of metal on metal mounts. I'll be sure to post additional information once I get everything else installed.

      I don't see how the strut mounts would make an audible noise/clunck coming from the transmission area letting off throttle. Ill see if I can get them replaced before witw though.

      One thing I did notice was when going over railroad crossing or a series of expansion joints it feels like the engine springs around before settling down. Anyone else notice this?
