FYI: Polyurethane motor mount torque insert for $13


Look at a Neuspeed, ECS, etc torque insert and you'll see that it has the part number 15.1106 stamped on it. It's an energy suspension part number which you can purchase from them or one of their distributors directly.
http://www.suspension.com/volks.htm $13 +shipping.
Part number for the corresponding OEM stretch bolt which should be replaced: N 105 580 01 = $2.75 retail from a dealer.
Hope this helps. (I have a Neuspeed, the above pictured is VF from my VF mount kit . . . . they're all the same mount)

Update: You can special order it at Autozone. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/pa...-Motor-Mount-Performance?itemIdentifier=28627

Yeah I don't regret paying $40 back in the day . . . was a worthwhile mod at that price . . . it's a must at this price

yeah, it use to be a "do it if you want mod"
now its, WHY NOT?

Well I'm interested to see if places that carry energy (like autozone, kragen, advance auto, pep boys) could special order it, thereby bypassing shipping fees. It is very conceivable that this could be had for $15 + tax with the OEM bolt.

Thanks for the gem of info http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
...possibly a dumb question...
does the insert or stretch-bolt come with washer?
or we gotta hit up the local hardware store?

what are the specs on the washer?
ADD: Its not a case of BSH/Neuspeed?ECS "screwing" people. some parts are high margin and some aren't. PLus the market sort of dictates price. I look at it this way, If I had known about this part, was a business and thought to resell it.....knowing its like 16$ worth of parts....but ALL my competitors were selling it for 40, and the public was willing to pay 40, why not sell it for 40? Now if it is 16$ in parts selling for like 80...thats a diff story. I know Phil (BSH) personally, he is not out to screw anyone.
