I think I might have one, albeit rebranded by Racingline from several years ago. It made the car feel a bit more gritty at lower revs but in a quite acceptable more purposeful manner. No great shakes either way and it made the car feel a bit better connected.

Did you experience much vibration or noise when installed

You mean the dogbone?  Yeah I'm on my second one.  Really good mount.  Rubbery goodness without the harshness of poly. 

The RacingLine one was made by Vibratechnics (because RL can't make sh1t themselves) but low durometer blue poly instead of rubber.  It was crap.  Vibratechnics' own rubber mount is far superior.   All of their mounts are superior to the competition in fact, but if you run all 3, you have to put up with a bit of NVH, especially at 2500rpm.  Way less NVH than the competition though.

2 x new OEM side mounts plus 1 x Vibrator Techniques = happy days.

I would avoid the Racingline mount, it's known to fail.  And it costs £40 more than Vibratechnics' own one!

How do you find the 034 mounts?  Street density?
