The Golf front mount reacts a large proportion of the accelaration and overrun torque and has to carry a proportion of the powertrain weight. The original VW mount was always going to be a compromise particularly with the extra weight and torque of this lovely Vee engine! This Vibra-Technics design is a direct replacement for the original but allows only a fraction of the engine movement. Therefore there is none of the engine inertia forces throwing the engine back and forwards under throttle on and off conditions. The car has a much 'Tighter' feel and exhaust manifolds are not subject to high bending stress. In addition the level of noise and vibration transmitted to the cabin is not greatly increased. It also gives vastly superior comfort and isolation from engine vibration over inferior aftermarket urethane mounts.
