034Motorsport is pleased to present a new performance dogbone mount (torque arm bushing) insert upgrade for the MkVII Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R, 8V Audi A3/S3 & MkIII Audi TT/TTS!
Have you increased the power output of your vehicle beyond the factory figures and are in need of a performance mount solution to effectively deliver that power to the ground? Are you tired of excess engine/transmission movement hindering shift quality and performance? The factory dogbone mount is one of the weakest links in the drivetrain, and is engineered with voids that allow for movement, isolating the driver from the road.
This precision-machined billet aluminum insert is designed to fill the large voids in the factory dogbone mount, and limit transmission and engine movement without sacrificing ride quality or introducing any perceivable additional noise, vibration, or harshness into the cabin. By filling the void in the factory mount, this insert eliminates the associated slop and ensures that you're experiencing crisper shifts and a more direct, connected driving experience.
Engineered to work in unison with the factory rubber mount, this insert was designed using CAD software and thoroughly tested and refined to provide noticeable slop reduction without introducing excessive noise or vibration into the cabin, which is common with lesser designs. Unlike polyurethane insert options on the market, this billet aluminum part will not pack and wear over time, and guarantees long-lasting performance.
This mount was thoroughly tested by 034Motorsport and independent Audi/Volkswagen enthusiasts before release on new MQB chassis vehicles. Installation is very simple, can be performed in minutes, and is completely reversible.

I'm extremely happy with my purchase. They shipped it out fast, the install was hassle free, the part is well crafted and looks professionally made. I bought this because our Mk7 w DSG was producing a loud bang at WOT when we shifted from 1st to 2nd gear. Insert helped it a lot.
Took about 20 minutes to install, most of which was getting the car on stands. My advice is to use an impact wrench, the torque for this bolt is around 90lbs.
Who knew some little thing like a small, well-engineered piece of metal can make me smile this much. I thought my stage 1 apr tune was too much for my '16 gti non-pp, so going for stage 2 would be
insane. Then i installed the dog bone insert. No wheel hop, no nvh, no problems. If you are on the fence about it, get off and get it on. Stage 2 will be installed next week!
The second you turn on the car after the install it feelseems like you are sitting on a monster. Took only 20 minutes to install, and resulted in better shifting and greater ability to put power down. The vibration is noticeable when taking off but now you can really feel the power.
WOW. It has COMPLETELY eliminated wheel hop on my Skoda Octavia VRS MK3 with JB1. It just spins the tyres now which is great. In terms of increased NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness) I would give it a 1 out 10 (with 10 being the worst) You can only really tell the vibration on first take off (no extra vibration when idling) which is very subtle and tbh most exhaust rumble and vibrate more lol. It is slightly more noticeable when going slowly up a steep incline which probably increases it to 2/10 but is very manageable. When driving you do feel more connected to the car when you give it abit - you can feel the engine torque up which i like. Gear changes are noticeably more crisp aswell. Overall, I cant honestly think of why you wouldn't want to get this done. Great piece of kit and doesnt cost much at all...
First off the material is fantastic. It looks as good as it preforms. I have a 2015 GTI s non PP with the version 1 dog bone mount. Install was very easy just a 21mm and an impact gun and its off in seconds. It fits right in and was done in under 10 mins. I can immediately feel a difference on start up but idle is the same. You might feel slightly more vibrations in the pedal and steering wheel in 1st and 2nd gear but its good. It makes me feel more connected to the vehicle. NO added vibrations to seat or floor ( in my opinion not good vibrations for a daily) When I open up the throttle is when I can see the biggest difference. It used to have such bad wheel hop I couldn't really launch. Now I can break my tires loose if I want to no problem. Greatest $37 I have ever spent on this car!
Beautiful item - it looked so good I wanted to keep it on my desk, but better to install it, so I did. As others have suggested, I cut a piece of rubber hose to fit over the bolt before installing the dogbone, and torked it the recommended amount. The car feels tighter, and so far I have not experienced any vibrations.
Have V1 on my Golf R and V2 on my GTI. Great improvements in throttle response and DSG shifts smoother aswell. 5 minute install if you know how to jack up your car or put it on a lift. Almost no added NVH to speak of even with AC on in reverse. I've had mine on my Golf R now for more than a year and its still doing its job quite well.
My car: 2016 GTI/PP 4dr 6sp 10000+miles
My 2016 came with the version 1 dogbone mount. It was easy to install and the instructions were straight forward. I did reuse the bolt but no issues so far.
The car feels awesome! Since the engine rocks less under hard acceleration, the shifts are better and more positive. Passengers who are car people will on notice the vibration on initial takeoff in first or reverse. In all other instances, you'll never know it was there. Who knew something so small and light can make such a big difference! Bye-bye wheel hop!
First off, this product is amazing! The responsiveness of gear changes is like night and day. I have a 2015 GTI, DSG. However, I had some difficulty recognizing which version I needed so I bought both, with he intention to return the incompatible version. And I have been waiting for my refund for over 2 weeks now. So if you need a refund be prepared to wait. And a representative informed me that refunds are issued in the form of a check.
I was a little skeptical and only bought it because of awesome reviews on forums. Only thing I can say WOW!!! Very easy to install, no NVH at all and you can clearly feel the difference. Day and night. Great product!
Fantastic. It was the cherry on top for my JB1 R. Instantly noticeable difference, sharper smoother shifts and no difference in NVH from what I can tell. This car deserves this from the factory. Thanks 034!
