I am guessing something with a tighter fit like the BFI stage 2 insert would add NVH. Never tried the 034 insert because of the reports of it breaking.
That interesting, do you drive in D at all?

I mostly drive in D. My insert is the Integrated Engineering one rather than the 034. This was the order of my install and the affect.

Roc-Euro arm - no NVH added, wheelhop eliminated with all-seasons, still some wheel hop with summers. Downshift lurching coming to a stop in D still present but less severe.

Revo Engine / BFI transmission mounts - NVH added, but mostly (N), minimal vibration and no harshness. Wheel hop with summers still present, but hops were quick and mild, barely transmitted to chassis. Downshift lurching slightly reduced but still present. Cornering slop greatly reduced.

IE insert - no NVH added, cannot comment on summer wheel hop as I am back on all-seasons until spring. Downshift lurching eliminated.

Cool

I just put this in my GTI. I love it. As others have said the feel of the car doesn't add much NVH. Great addition to my car. I have noticed that from a dead stop my car does not wheel hop/spin tires as easy. Im DSG and have a downpipes, APR complete intake. I am also JB1 tuned as well. Will be going JB1-JB4 upgrade and playing with the maps. We will see how the dogbone mount will work out.

I've seen that some people have found their insert was bent or malformed after awhile.
I was under my car the other day and checked mine out. No warping or anything after about 20k miles at stage 2. Still performs great, one of the best mods for the $ IMO.
Maybe the people this happens to aren't installing or torquing properly? Maybe they just thrash their cars...

The IE insert looks like a better design, but I thought people were having issue with the poly bushings breaking apart?

I currently have the 034 insert, but I'm a bit worried about running this at the track. Thinking about switching.

I don't think I've heard of anyone with an insert (BFI, Neuspeed, IE, etc.) being squished out or cut. There were some issues with the full puck replacement (revo) breaking.

I have the BFI one and it tore apart. It was vibrating and making all kinds of weird noises. Finally looked at it and it was ripped and missing peices. I replaced it with the 034. Much better.

I stand corrected.

irony of the story is that i had first purchased the 034 mount and then read stories about it bending, so I left it in my toolbox and purchased the bfi insert. Turns out the bfi insert took a shit on me so I went to my toolbox and installed the 034 mount lol.

Did you have motor/trans mounts at the time? I'm thinking the more engine stability you've got, the less likely any one mounting component is to fail.

Here is a pic of it. That's how it was in the car. I had to pull it out piece by piece. I didn't have engine mounts with it initially. Only after it was already fucked up.

That’s the stage one, correct? I have the stage 2 and wonder about its life span.

to add to that ^

it was rattling around like a bitch making all kinds of noise. Right now I am using the 034 v2 insert. It has way less vibrations at idle than the BFI insert. Shifts feel about the same, but I'm also using 034 motor and transmission mounts. I'll probably just keep running the 034 insert and replace it with another one if it gets too bent or beat up. I would like to replace the whole mount with a superpro mount but I'm not sure if they sell that piece alone or only in their 3 piece mount package.
