Who's fitted the purples and who's fitted the black and what's your opinions of them?

 

I'm swaying towards the purples at the moment.

 

The car is used for road only not a track car.

Yellow dog bone & gearbox mounts inserts fitted to my 8P with a slight vibration only on idle once warmed up.
If mine is anything to go by i wouldn't use the purple or black tbh.

Ah ok, i don't mind a little vibration as long as it's not shaking the interior to bits.

 

I noticed you have the HG Motorsport Intake pipe, is that the turbo elbow or the top part?

Baz.

The vibration on idle can be felt though the bucket seats/left foot rest.

It just the replacement pipe from the airbox to turbo elbow mate.

I have the same inserts as Dell. Very happy with results.

Another with the upper and lower gearbox mounts, as dell says I wouldn’t go for anything stiffer than the yellow. It makes the world of difference having them fitted but there is added cabin vibration. Personally I like it as it feels a bit more raw, but it’s going be one of those marmite things.

If/when you fit them, carry out a gearbox adaption via VCDS as it smooths the changes

Ditto the advice of Dell, Ollie and Arkious. Strangely I get the vibration through the steering column. Only very slight vibration at idle, worse when the engine is warming up but it’s very slight and honestly I don’t even notice it now and anyway I kind of like it the same as Arkious

Thanks boys, apologies for the delay.

 

I ordered all those mounts, a set of B16's and H&R rear ARB.  Should feel quite different once it's all on.  :D

Ive fitted the gearbox mount the other day with no noticeable vibes Also ordered the dog bone mount but the red type (diesel version apparently) this is the softest compound they do, hoping it fits as it’s not listed for the RS3 but is listed for the s3. Part number is PFF85704R. I’ll report back on fitment and vibrations.

I have the red (diesel version) fitted to my 8p, only issue, getting the bloody thing pushed fully in, like most ended up using a jack.

Fitted the red insert earlier today, needed easing in with a jack also but a straightforward process. I might be tempted to get the upper engine mount now as the vibrations are still manageable.
