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.
