ECS bracket bushings ordered haha. I needed to order replacement TTY hardware for the BFI trans mount I should have by the end of the week anyways. I ordered them on Black Friday and they originally was supposed to ship on the 5th, then I got an email that they were shipping on the 22nd, and finally yesterday I got shipping confirmation.

I’ve never had much bad to say about ECS, but their “in stock” statuses on their site are kind of bullshit. The bolts showed that they were in stock and shipping same day so I paid a little extra for ground vs economy shipping to have them by the weekend. Seconds after ordering the status changed and now they’re supposed to ship tomorrow. Coming from Ohio they should still be here on time but it’s a minor annoyance.

ECS fucked me on a radiator once. I haven't used them since.

Mounts arrived today. I was real confused since the tracking link sent me to fedex where I kept getting an invalid tracking number message. Plugged the number into UPS and it shows they were delivered today. Hopefully the hardware is here by Saturday as I’d like to do the engine and transmission mount at the same time.

BFI stage one engine and transmission. Glad I went that route after seeing a few of those CTS and 034 engine mounts snapping on the MQB page. For Black Friday ECS had the transmission mount for 15% off like BFI did but it was still somehow $20 less than at BFI so overall I saved 20% on the set. Looks like the bushings and hardware will be here Monday so that sucks.

Nice. I have a bfi stage 1 trans mount on my rabbit. BFI stage 2 engine/trans for the gti. I think they have some of the better mounts out of the rest I've seen. You'll like them, completely changes the way the power is put down.

Most of the reviews seem pretty good. I had a threaded rod and some hockey pucks for a motor mount on a previous car so my standards for acceptable NVH are pretty low hahaha.

Motor mount in, feels great. Didn’t realize how much the stock mount let the motor flop around. Aaaand the replacement hardware for the trans mount was delivered 30 minutes after I got the car off jack stands.
