search revealed nothing except mounts for 1.8T's. Posted in B5 forum, but didn't get much of a reply.
Are there any companies that make upgraded/stronger/stiffer/better side engine mounts for the 30V? Getting mounts replaced under warranty this week and thought it would be a great time to upgrade if I had a choice. I'm getting a snub mount put in when it all goes down. Thanks for the help!

I've been thinking about changine mine out also when I get headers installed.. I'm pretty sure the S4 mounts are the same as ours, but I'm not positive yet. If they are then there are a few options
RS4 mounts - ECS tuning has em
Race mounts - http://www.designitprototype.com/ pricey
puremotor mounts - http://www.pure-motorsport.com/products/description.php/II=1001/CA=343/PA=4
Puremotor says the mounts fit all the B5 engines
Let us know what route you go if you do something aftermarket, I'd be interested to hear about it. Good luck

Dang,those Designit mounts look bitchin'! Unfortunately I can't afford them right now. I saw the PureMS ones before, but they are only an "upgrade" for the 1.8T motors. As I understand, they are simply stock 2.8 mounts.
Since the dealer is paying for new factory mounts, I'll pass on the PureMS mounts.
I tell you what I did find out in my search for mounts, though... www.autospeedperformance.com/ has a DTS for Tiptronic!! (sorry if everyone already knew this, it was news to me). I think I'll let the dealer pay for my motor mounts and I'll save up money for the Tiptronic DTS. I sure wish I could afford the Designit mounts, though
