Does that sound right to anyone who has already ordered them?

      And even if they are $500+, so? According to Josh, there are no better mounts for this car. You bought a $30,000 car and you care about an extra $100 bucks for the best parts?

      Can't wait to get these in the car!
      not all of us bought it brand new, hell thats almost what half of what the wheels and tires ppl buy around here are for 500+ i mean. Seams steep for the price bc vf mounts are way less

      What is it with the people in here and math? Has the school system really failed us that badly?

      The VF mounts are $200 each, these are $180 each.

      Not only that, VF bushings needs replaced every year or two at like 120$ for the whole set. I'm sooo tempted to buy these and sell my VF set

      Do these do as good of a job at keeping the motor from moving around as the VF ones? The motor moving less than stock is one thing, but holding the motor as solid as the VF ones do is another.

      Well I have the 034 street mounts coming, I'll do some video of the movement of my stock mounts and then of the 034's. I can shake the motor by hand in my car...

      Alright, I'm not sure if anyone else has yet, so I sent an e-mail to them about group buy pricing. I'll keep everyone posted.

      Just installed these yesterday. They definitely make a ton more noise than the stock mounts, but I like it. Transmission whine is very evident. They perform well though, and its gotten much easier to change gears and the engine no longer feels like its going to jump out of the bay.

      Interesting.

      What dogbone are you running, software (idle RPM), what cams/cats/exhaust, stock exhaust manifolds/downpipes?

      I have a modified stock dogbone with urethane bushing thats been on the car for years. I have a stock exhaust with the flapper mod and everything else you mentioned is stock. I have an AEM intake which is probably adding to the noise as it did when I replaced the stock airbox.

      Did you not notice a big jump in the noise levels?

      Not only did I not notice an increase in noise, but neither did my GF who doesn't even know I changed the mounts..nor her father who didn't know I changed the mounts (and he daily drives a Phaeton which is Uber smooth and quiet).

      As I mentioned earlier though.. my car has a bunch of stuff that changes things...my flash raises the idle slightly and changes cam timing (I don't know if cam timing is changed at idle though, probably not)

      My cams themselves are different which will affect breathing pulses (272)

      My supersprint headers definitely smooth things out and quiets the car down.

      My cats are dual 2.25 instead of stock dual 2 and my catback is a 2.75 instead of 2.5

      All those things can change the harmonics of the engine.


      Maybe I'm just THAT deaf. I did 4 years in the U.S. Army stationed in an artillery unit so I have pretty bad hearing loss.

      I dont think the seller has any interest in a group buy at this point. He has not responded to any posts reffering to GB's.

      He is not allowed, he is not a paying advertiser on Vortex. It wouldn't make any sense for him to PAY to be an advertiser just to have a sale to the few guys that would buy. It would be a loose loose situation for him.

      These mounts are quality, and produced in limited #'s (not like thousands of them exist.)

      If someone picks the 034 mounts over these based upon whatever difference in price a group buy would drop off the price that is just silly. The mounts are in a different league.

      understood, I agree that the mounts are good. Does this mean your going to setup the gb?

      It does not benefit those of us who've already bought them.

      Hey guys,

      my buddy with an .:R showed me this thread, since I am in the market fo rnew mounts. I currently run all BFI stg 2 mounts. I am a 1.8t though, and I needed some help cross referrencing the engien codes. The car linked on wheelwores is a 1.8t and his code is AGU. I am AWP (but still a 1.8t) on the DLI site it looks like DLI-0111 and DLI-0113 are the ones that would work for my application, does this sound correct? TIA

      Also, are you all aware fo the Brewspeeds? i dont think these will offer the same lack of vibration, but for those who dislike the look of the VFs, or the DLI's. THese offer a diffrent look as well. Site does not specify engine though, whereas VF and DLI seem to have different mounts for the Trans side.
