Just installed ECS dogbone motor mount bushings on my 03 beetle 1.9 tdi. I already see eyeballs rolling. Why would anyone market and design something that vibrates that much at idle? I got the black bushings which they told me would be the best option for stock replacement. Is it true about break in and getting better after 2k or so? Raising idle to 1100 would be a cure all as well. Shifts and seems to accelerate better as a positive note. No more clunks either. Any comments good or bad would be great. I had to replace all 3 as everything was rotten/shot.

after 2 months of trying to modify the ECS motormounts by drilling and milling I gave up and got a VW one for 63 bucks. Smooth as glass. Hope someone reads this and does not waste any money on the ECS's. They suck
