      Feedback from a 2012 Beetle owner...looks like we have a new application to add to the list...

      Had the HPA - HVW-904-75 (Red) Dog Bone Mount insert installed in my (Manual Shift)
      2012 2.0 VW Turbo Beetle today. Since the OEM insert has a Durometer strength level of no more
      than 60, I chose the HPA '75' ...the same category as the one recommended for the new Golf R. Once installed, it is immediately evident that the 'wheel hop' I was experiencing became much reduced. Adding an ECU 'Flash' to the Turbo Beetle should definitely be accompanied with HPA's 'mount' upgrade if you want better performance...to help reduce, over time, even more stress that a turbo powered Beetle will be subjected to.

      Installed mine in the .:R yesterday. Difference in the smoothness of shifts and overall feeling of connectedness is amazing.

I expect that to decrease as the mount settles. Bottom line is smoothness in shifting/drivability is way up...

      The 90a durometer (BLUE) is recommended for the Mk5 R32.

      This also might a placebo effect, but I did some quick lane changes at speed (on a closed road with no other cars or traffic) and I swear to god, it feels like it reduces body roll and doesn't seem to throw the engine causing it to transfer weight in the wrong direction making the car feel unstable. Just feels more hunkered down.

      I wish I would have done this upgrade to my GTI when I had it!

      No Brainer upgrade!
      Appreciate the review!

      I went from the 80 to the 75 mount due to vibrations and the difference is like night and day.
      I would recommend the 75 for lightly modded daily driven cars. Very slight vibrations and still major difference from stock while shifting. More precise smoother shifting just like the 80 mount but with way less cabin vibrations.

      I am interested in this for my MKV R32. Does this work with the oem mount or do you need an aftermarket mount. I am under the understanding that this is a insert for the oem mount.

      Thanks

      From the HPA Website:

      Unlike the urethane inserts which merely reinforce the OEM rubber mount, this is a completely re-engineered one stop solution that will control the engine’s motion without the need to install aftermarket side mounts. The ride comfort is retained, but the shift response and chassis feel is vastly improved.

      The mount we recommend for your car is the 90a "blue" variety...
