Switched from 034 Tracksport mounts to Streetsport. The Tracksports were just too stiff for daily driving; the brand new Streetsports already have substantially less NVH than the broken-in Tracksports, and should smooth out nicely in a few miles.

I think I've finally found the best mounts for this car.

Doing pulls for fun today I noticed the car has a hard fall off point at 5k in third gear. It’s stock tune and turbo, so maybe it’s the power limit until further tuning. Idk.

Tried to get the car to start today. Starts but won’t go over 7 mph. Speedometer light is on, Stablization light is on, steering wheel light but the only code is a knock sensor. Have to get it to the dealership by Monday morning.. it’s 2 hours away and insurance said they won’t pay for it

let us know how long the street sports actually last. I installed a replacement set 4k miles ago and the trans mount already went bad

How bad was the timing job to do?
I was lucky to have an Audi mechanic helping...more like I was helping him. It sounds like you're pretty handy with a spanner and it's pretty straightforward. Took us 6 hrs and the engine bar was necessary. If I were solo, it probably would have been an 8hr job. Having the ECS instructions, the Specifications to verify torque values and the FSM were helpful.

Trying to find coilovers that stay close to stock height. Any recommendations? Don’t wanna be a snow plow, lol
I have the VWR StreetSport, which I don't think they make any more. I really like them and they do get the car off the ground for winter weather here in Denver and the surrounding mountains.
