really? what makes you wish you went stage 2? do you feel that the stage 1 is a little softer than you though it was going to be?

sorry for all the questions just want to make the right choice for my car!
idk, i was almost expecting something bone jarring.
i have stage 2 BFI subframe mount already
and i remember that sometimes i stalled out when i was trying to get out of first trying to break that bitch in. that mount felt bone jarring at times.

this one is soft but doesnt flex much.
honestly i feel the stage 2 might just be more vibration than actual performance gain.

pete talked me into getting the stage 1 because its my daily driver, and i still need to drive it moar to really decide if i want to upgrade later down the road.


my stock motor mount only has 67500 as of today but damn that thing really flexed alot

nickbeezy,

Thanks for the pictures and feedback. Mucho appreciated!

Break-in is usually 100 miles or so. Once it breaks in the vibrations will be almost non-existent.

I have no experience with Stage 2 inserts on this mount, but given how well the Stage 1 has performed in my 2.5T, I don't see the need to go Stage 2.

Who's going to be the first to go Stage 2? :confused::D


The mount is Ordered, so now I can be cool too!:cool:
We appreciate your business! Enjoy! :thumbup::thumbup:


Stage 3 can be done. We have Delrin bushings available for it.

About to order mine..

Any tricks to installing this? I know for the trans insert you need to support the transmission with a jack..

Or is this a quick unbolt the old, bolt in the new?
