I've given up trying to source an uprated gearbox mount without getting a track focused version too harsh for day to day driving, so I am going to fit a new original mount with a Powerflex insert.

 

My question is are the 2* mounts listed for the 8P interchangeable?

 

8P0 199 555    : To - 05.03.2012

8P0 199 555 A : From - 05.03.2012 onwards.

 

Im assuming the 'A' revision is just an updated part?

 

Does anyone know for sure?

 

:D

Mods: Milltek Decat pipes, Bilstein B16 Coilovers, Superpro front control arms, 034 Motorsport Dogbone mount, 034 Motorsport Rear ARB, 034 Motorsport Rear Drop Links, EBC Redstuff brake pads front & rear

It’ll be either a superseded part that’s had a slight design change or been made by a different supplier.

Thanks Sean, just wondering if anyone had used the newer part for confirmation  :)

Enjoy the powerflex insert, makes the gear changes unbelievably smoother!

I’m sure the new mount on its own would be a great improvement but it’s an ideal time to fit the insert. TBH the only graunchy changes are 1st to 2nd but as long as the clunking stops I’ll be happy 😊

I had a new mount replaced under warranty end of 2017. Huge improvement. I didn’t opt to use any inserts and so far it’s still proving to be solid. If it goes I may throw some of the inserts in.
