    I just received today. Did I receive the revision? If not I want to return and not take any chances.

    What has been changed on the mount? And, has it been tested on someone's car that was complaining about too much NVH with the original version 2 mount? Lastly, will the NVH be closer or the same to what people with version 1 are experiencing? Sorry for the questions, I just don't want to go through the hassle of returning, receiving, installing, and having the same outcome. BTW - Your companies customer service has been great (dealing with Sam)!! Thanks for any response you can give to this.

      Hi Robert,

      The profile of the mount and thickness of the base has changed. This eliminates the NVH issues for affected customers, and results in a stronger insert as well. The feedback we've received from customers testing the revised insert has been the same as from V1 owners. Since the V2 mounts seem to be making it into more new cars, we've been able to test the revision on more vehicles.

      Hope that helps!

      Cheers,
      The 034Motorsport Team

    Hi Laszlo, you said that the thickness has changed. Is it now thicker or thinner than the original one? Mine doesn't bother me much but as others, I'd like to know if this is something worth doing, twice?

    One other question, can I come by your facility and have it done at the there?

      Good question! one feature is now thinner than the original, and the base is thicker. If you're happy with the ride and performance of your insert, there isn't a need to upgrade, and you can always update later if you change your mind.

      Feel free to email us if you' like us to do the swap here. You can reach me directly at ltallai@034motorsport.com :)
