Ok owners of the upper and lower mounts I have few questions...
First of all - today I put those two in my car.
Steering wheel isn't shaking more but the car does.
Inside the car it is much more louder like someone took off noise cover form the engine bay in front of the drivers cabin.
Exhaust tips are shaking like crazy and I think whole exhaust too.
Car sound is totally different - more metalic and hmmm let's call it bad.
Will it stabilize some over time or something is wrong ?

Yes it will, did you torque the mounts correctly?

Today i did some driving after yesterday changes.
After about 70-80km:
Cons:
- car is louder inside - more metallic sounds from the engine especially when lowering or raising engine rotations
- car is shaking more - you can feel it for example on handbrake lever most
- car exhaust sound changed a bit - I don't know why
Pros:
- no more wheel hops - I tried fast starts many times (I'm still on winter tires)
- you can feel how wheels just bite the road and car press you into the seat

Summarizing - great for racing and fast driving but not too good for everyday car.

PS. I changed the spark plugs and all fluids (engine/gear/coolant/brake) too with those mounts.

My service installed it and I gave them both paper manuals.
Recheck the torquing of the major connecting bolts.

You’re going to experience some additional firmness and some increase cabin noise, until they’re run in but it will diminish. Your simply used to the cushy OEM motor mounts.

There is info in the manual about factory torque so I think they knew it when they mounted them.
I just need to wait and drive some more to see some improvement.
For now I'm 85% happy - no wheel hop (yet) but some more noise and shake.
