034Motorsport is pleased to present Billet Aluminum Rear Subframe Mount Inserts for the B8/B8.5 Audi S4/RS4, S5/RS5, Q5/SQ5!
The B8/B8.5 Audi S4/RS4, S5/RS5, and Q5/SQ5 use rubber rear subframe mounts which deflect under load, causing the rear end to feel vague and loose, as well as leading to less-than-optimal suspension geometry and increased understeer. These precision-machined billet aluminum inserts are designed to fill voids in the factory rear subframe mounts, and limit subframe movement without sacrificing ride quality or introducing any perceivable additional noise, vibration, or harshness into the cabin. The result is a more refined, connected driving experience, as well as improved effectiveness of aftermarket rear sway bar upgrades and suspension components.
Designed to work in conjunction with the factory rubber mounts, this insert package was engineered using CAD software and thoroughly tested and refined to provide a significant improvement in handling performance and feel.
These inserts were tested extensively by 034Motorsport and independent Audi enthusiasts before release on multiple B8/B8.5 vehicles. Installation is very simple, can be performed in under an hour, and is completely reversible.

Install was pretty straight forward, the included instructions were great. The hardest part was prying out the old hardware. The new inserts went in easily. The whole install took about an hour and a half and I'm no mechanic.
The inserts themselves are very high quality. They are much larger than I thought they would be.
Post install, there was a noticeable increase in steering precision and "steering weight." Great suspension mod...especially at the current price point.
Just installed them today. Took the car out for a very hard drive and it feels as if my coils are brand new again. It rides amazing and really does a big difference. You notice it more when you corner hard and even just move from side to side in a lane going about 35 plus MPH
I installed the 034 subframe mounts today at Achtuning. This was a fairly involved install so I didn't try to do it on my own. Initial thoughts are that the change in ride quality is somewhat subtle when driving casually on the highway or through city streets. But it was under hard acceleration and tight turns that I definitely felt a difference. Under acceleration, the car felt more uniform and planted to the ground. That may be simply due to the mounts taking away the travel that was occurring with the stock mounts. The Q felt more firm and as a result, the shifts felt smoother and had less of those undesirable impacts to the chasis. In hard turns, the car had less wobble as well (at least that is how it felt to me). For $140, not a bad upgrade!
