Product description


The factory engine mounts on your MK7 GTI or Golf are constructed from soft rubber with several voids to allow movement. This design does not account for spirited driving and is unable to limit engine movement on cars with increased horsepower. In order to limit engine movement, Spulen created a polyurethane insert that installs into the factory rubber mount. The Spulen mount was specifically designed to decrease drivetrain movement while having little to no increase in vibration at idle.  

Once the mount is installed, drivetrain movement is reduced and you will experience smoother shifts and less engine movement. Unlike other mounts currently available the Spulen mount features an integrated spacer to properly fill the void in the center of the OEM mount. The integrated spacer allows for an easy installation and ensures the spacer is correctly aligned to the OEM mount. The extreme version is constructed from 90A durometer and is best suited for the hardcore enthusiast or a track car. Vibration at idle is near to none.

The Spulen mount is a simple installation that can be performed in a matter of minutes requiring no modification to the factory mount. It is also the only mount out on the market that fits both Version 1 + Version 2 subframe applications. This makes it easy for installation on all MQB applications, no need to check what subframe your vehicle has prior to purchase.

Ive used Spulen mounts (street application) on my previous mk6 Gli and absolutely loved it, only the "stiffness" faded as the car got higher in mileage. I then bought my mk7 Gti and figured the extreme mount would do much better and indeed a wise choice! I would highly recommend this mount, especially for stage 1.5+ tuned vehicles! The power transfer and cancellation of wheel hop is insane!

Advantages: • Less wheel hop at launch
• No more sloppy shifter
• Deacceleration isnt as "jerky"
• Absolutely AMAZINGLY fast shipping and UNBELIEVABLE customer service from USP Motorsports!!!

Disadvantages: • Cabin vibrations greatly increased and can be highly annoying, but if youre anything like me, feeling one with the car is one of the most satifying feelings, and the vibrations soothe the soul!

This is a must-have for tuned cars. My APR Stage I Golf no longer shreds tires when I floor it, rather it transfers all the power to the road. This makes the car actually faster, because no loss of traction. I have yet to try it with Traction Off, but I believe it will have the same effect. My Golf truly handles notably better, and the shifts are "cleaner." For the price, you can't really beat it. Thanks Spulen and USP!!

Advantages: Quality-built product, price, and install is easy (just make sure you have 21 AND 22mm sockets.) The after effects of this in terms of handling, acceleration and shifting are truly great.

Disadvantages: If you have a 2015 Golf, make sure to get a 21mm socket to take off the OEM bolt. The one in this kit is 22mm, however the OEM one on my car is actually 21mm. This made install a little longer but no huge deal.
NOTE: if you turn your A/C on while parked, the car WILL shake. It doesn't shake much at idle with the air off, but just beware. I think it is cool (pun haha) but then again this is a stiff bushing, so that will happen. The shaking goes away after you pick up speed. follow me on Instagram at rherr20 to see lots of great cars (including mine!)

$35 for a performance part is pretty good value in my opinion. My Australian delivery vehicle would at first not accept the part but by slightly shaving the square corners off the end of the two thin fingers it went straight in. There was a slight metalic knock on start up and again when accelerating quickly whilst turning right which began to concern me, after an investigation I discovered the large Diameter metal washer was quite close to the engine cradle and was at times under certain conditions knocking. I machined 1 mm off the washer's diameter and it is way way better now.

Advantages: Difficult to say as I installed this component almost imediatly after purchasing the car new. Maybe a little more bite from the wheels and transmission.

Disadvantages: A little more vibration changing up through the gears but smooth and quiet on the highway at speed. Sharp corners at end of moulding should be rounded to aid installion, Large diameter metal washer may be a touch too big for some vehicles

Noticeable difference

Advantages: Smoother shifts
Cheap little mod

Disadvantages: More vibration from the motor is transferred to the cabine of the car. Only noticeable stationary, not at all when in motion.
