So so tempted but already emptied my slush fund for this month on the AEM. How much do these improve performance?

There's no performance improvement compared to oem mounts in good condition.

However, if your mounts are failing/failed then they need replacing.

These options are cheaper than oem and the inserts are replaceable in future.

Are these not a bit stiffer than OEM and so give better throttle response and gear changes? I have a pair of these (in red) and that's what I was told. They also do give a bit of vibration at 1.5-2k revs, even with the softer rubber bushes, but I was told this was unavoidable and it comes from the slightly extra stiffness. The noise goes once you go higher into the revs. So not much of a problem unless constantly in stop start traffic.

They are stiffer than oem, because of the simpler design.

They don't impact throttle response, at all.
They will improve gear changes, compared to knackered oem mounts

If you had a brand new set of OEM versus a brand new set of these. Assuming some bedding in time as needed, you would have similar gear change performance? Sorry just trying to understand as I thought going stiffer improved gear changes, etc, at the expense of NVH.

P.S. Sorry Goobie, I'm derailing your selling thread. Apologies. Mods, is there is a better place to discuss this. Can we move my posts? Or I'll happily delete and start this convo elsewhere.....

This is relevant to the sale, so I don't see any issue.

In answer to your question, the gear change action would be (near as dam it) identical between new oem mounts and these alternatives.

They're stiffer than oem in the vertical because that's the only way to achieve the horizontal stiffness required, within the limitation of the design and materials.

The oem mounts are slightly stiffer in the horizontal but more compliant in the vertical.

This is why the oem mounts are so expensive, in comparison.

The RRP mounts aren't pitched as a performance upgrade, they're a cost effective alternative; especially so the second time around, if you run them long enough to need to replace the inserts.

No more messing around, in till I have cleared funds I'm classing them as still available.

I've had three people now telling me they will have them and to send payment detail then not to even have the decency to tell me they changed there mind then be ignored.

A used set with spanner marks on them sold for £300 recently.

These are brand new never fitted, this is a steal now at £295 Delivered!
