So I'm in the market for an aftermarket snub mount. What are the pros and cons of all the ones available on the market? 034, APR, Stern, Apikil, BFI, etc.?

Which ones are the stiffest? Which ones are squeaky? Which ones have added in cabin vibrations? Any info will help. Thanks

I've got an apr snub. really cant complain, installation was easy once I heated it up. no squeaks but i did notice some additional vibration at idle, I don't notice anymore though! 9/10 would recommend

I was favoring the bfi or the 034(purchased through jhm). I will be pulling the trigger this week on one of them

I have the 034 snub/cage. It's meh. Not a huge difference from a stock one.

i have the same vibration at idle. no issues otherwise though. i replaced mine when i did y timing belt, i figured its only 30$ and no extra work.

APR here, don't really notice any major difference to be honest (but my stock mount was fine when I removed it)

034 with 034 bracket. One must understand this is mostly for the front to back movement of the engine. Your motor mounts have more to do with side to side.

this, exactly. we have very little front to back movement because our car are longitudinal, if it were transverse, it would be the opposite

We offer two different versions of our snub mount for the A4 (well, four between the different engine codes) depending on the level of upgrade you're going for.

The snub mount limits the fore/aft movement of the engine, as well as the up/down movement of the front of the engine. If you want to minimize NVH transfer into the cabin but still limit movement more than the stock mount, I'd recommend just our $20 Polyurethane B5 Audi A4 Snub Mount (http://store.034motorsport.com/poly-snubber-mount-early-audi-b5-a4-s4-rs4-c4-c5-a6-s6.html?utm_source=audizine&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=Laszlo%40034). This keeps the stock bracket and leaves the air gap that the factory mount has to eliminate NVH transfer at idle.

If you want to lock the drivetrain down further, we offer the B5 Audi A4 Polyurethane Snub Mount with Cage (http://store.034motorsport.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=Snub+Mount+B5+A4&utm_source=audizine&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=Laszlo%40034), which eliminates the air gap and completely lock in the snub mount on the front of the car.

Oem Rs4 is pretty good from what I hear. No strange cabin vibrations.

034 with 034 bracket. One must understand this is mostly for the front to back movement of the engine. Your motor mounts have more to do with side to side.

The snub mount is there too keep the motor/trans inline, so it keeps the nose of the motor from going up/down and side/side to keep it on a tight axis point. It is not there for side to side rocking movement which is what the 2 motor mounts on either side of the motor are for. So the snub mount is basically a pivot point. The less your motor/trans move the less stress there will be on the snub mount.

I have the 034 motorsports snubmount with cage along with Stern firm engine and transmission mounts. Car is very locked down, and has no drivetrain slop at all.
