Strut Mounts

I bought KW V2's and need new front strut mounts. I really want the 034 Strut mounts but I have not seen anyone on hear that runs these or any reviews on these. So I am kinda leaning toward getting New Audi RS4/TT strut mounts because I want the oem quality and there proven to be effective. What's your guys thoughts? Any like there 034 strut mounts?

RS3, not RS4.

I don't know the 034, but the RS3/TT are great. You'll notice the difference
in steering precision without any harshness.

034 makes quality stuff. I've heard nothing but good things about them. I'll be getting a set of their motor mounts as soon as tax return time comes around.

I purchased them at the local VW/Audi 'stealer'.

ECS also sell these parts, even both "6N0 ..." and SKF bearings.
I'd go for the SKF ones if you order at ECS.

I found the bearings and mounts at Audi of Alexandria for 38.31 (mount) and 6.67 (SKF bearing).

http://parts.audiofalexandria.com/

Much better pricing than anywhere else.
