which motor/trans mounts are you using?

The unitronic dogbone mount definitely stops most front/back movement assuming your motor/trans mounts aren't shot.
I myself installed the BFI stage 2 motor and trans and dogbone insert, thanks to the help in this post

Again the shop wouldn’t recommend anything for this problem that has persisted after all those mount and insert upgrades I just mentioned ——— he said it’s normal movement regardless (even though the car didn’t have this issue before), and the other shop said don’t even touch it either, either use a dogbone insert which I already did or dont do anything

So in other words I got two VW and euro shops telling me I don’t have any options they would recommend to move forward with

For the sake of discussion, let’s assume they are correct for a second now. The unitronic assembly mentioned above would be a huge expense for no reason, maybe some fun new acoustics or maybe less than current but that’s about it.

If you upgraded to stage 2 mounts, your engine isn’t moving and causing anything. Do you have anything that allows you to log?

How can you be so sure? Do you really expect my dogbone insert to make up for all the slack from a worn out dogbone bushing? If there’s play in the dogbone bushing, then it doesn’t matter how solid the engine and trans mounts are or that a dogbone insert is in there, there’s going to be movement.

I can log but can’t specifically find anything atypical other than some throttle related stuff mentioned in other posts. I also am not an expert.
