4 options

POwerflex inserts in the existing one
Elevate
Vibratechnics
GGR own make

Elevate for me too, had the vibra version and was a relief to get it replaced before it shook the fillings out of my head

Lol. No.

It stops the feeling of the engine swinging in the car under heavy on off acceleration. Which to me means the acceleration is more accurate and immediate if that makes sense. . Also gears tighten up so combine that with qs

Yeah i heard the Vibratechnics one was a little on the solid side

Seems most go with the elevate one, don't fancy burning my old rubber bushes out so powerflex one is a no, GGR one doesn't seem to get much notice?

Fitting is pretty easy, just drop the undertray off and its there, they are generally very tightly bolted in though....

The powerflex one is an insert which slots into the existing rubber mount, no burning out to do....

Ahh! i thought it replaced the rubber part of the standard ally mount.

Anyone using the powerflex one and any comparison to the elevate link?

I have standard mount with rubber and glue filling the voids, cost me £3 for some glue and does the trick. Much stiffer and not to much vibration
