The 034Motorsport Street Density Dogbone Mount Pair for the MkVII Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R, 8V/8V.5 Audi A3/S3/RS3 & MkIII Audi TT/TTS/TTRS is manufactured from 65 durometer rubber - as opposed to the factory part's 55 durometer - and features a steel thread insert in the upper mount for increased resistance to stripping threads.
This upgrade is compatible with our full line of MQB drivetrain upgrades, and offers decreased drivetrain movement, crisper shifting, and reduced wheel hop, with minimal noticeable increase in noise, vibration, or harshness (NVH) inside of the cabin.
We strongly recommend replacing the subframe bolts with new stretch bolts included in the Front Subframe Hardware Kit for Audi 8V/8V.5 A3/S3/RS3, Audi 8S TT/TTS/TTRS, and Volkswagen MkVII Golf/GTI/R
NVH changes may be more noticeable in vehicles equipped with DSG or Tiptronic transmissions, and/or if your factory engine/transmission mounts are worn or failed. We recommend giving the mounts at least 250 miles to break in after installation.
