      Got my mount installed. It makes the car feel more like a car and less like a sofa.

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

      The 75a durometer (RED) is recommended for the Golf R.

      Had a mount in my MK3 VR6 and it was the best upgrade I did. Tried one in my MK4 1.8T and I pulled it out almost immediately. The vibrations were horrible and the car felt awful. How would this work in my R?... keeping in mind we do get a lot of snow and a lot of cold weather... as in -35 degrees celcius.

      Luvadubdub,

      There must be hundreds of Golf R owners out there now (many, many Vortexers) with this mod. The 75a mount provides a performance improvement without being noticable...which is what a motor mount should do.

      I have lived in Edmonton, I am aware of the winters. I have sold these mounts in Regina, Winnipeg, etc. They will stand up to the weather...

      Not worried about them surviving... worried about me surviving the vibrations the cold may bring out in the mount. Like I said, loved it in the VR6... Never noticed it. Hated the one I tried in my 1.8T. You really figure i won't notice any additional vibrations? Even in winter?

      You will DEFINITELY notice an increase in vibrations with this mount, but they are not so bad that it becomes annoying. The mount makes the engine feel more connected to the car. I actually REALLY like mine.

      Installed my 75a Red mount yesterday and OMG, what an amazing upgrade! It for sure vibrates down low and is a little harsher, but I quickly got used to it and it doesn't really bother me anymore.

      Everything feels much more connected with the drive train, shifts feel more precise and more solid. I had a hard time getting it into 1st to 2nd when taking it up above 6K, not anymore, shifting feels much more effortless. Love it!

      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!
