Mount should be fine from all years 2007-2012+ Just be careful not to get a standard 3 mount if you're thinking of doing the CS inserts. From EVERYTHING that I've read the standard 3 w/ inserts will chatter your teeth out of your head.

My mount is 2010+. It looks the same as my 2008 mount though.

Not sure about the stock 3 mount, but I had the inserts in my 2008 MS3 and it was perfect. I really mean that. Just perfect.

I still have to say that just the switch to the stock MS3 rear mount made a huge difference in my car. Much more pleasurable to drive now.

If you look at any aftermarket RMM or even CS inserts... they are the same part number for the 2007-2009 as they are for the 2010-2012+. So any mount from this vintage should work.

No, I have not heard the teeth chattering from the MS3 mount... most people like these. It's the Mazda 3 mount that seems to be no good.

Well I just said eff it and picked up a OEM MS3 mount for $25 shipped and ordered a set of CS inserts. Not a bad option for $66.

That is what I thought.

You might want to try it without the inserts first. It is not hard to change and add them later.

Too late... the inserts are already ordered.... I figured worst case scenario they shouldn't be too hard to rid off if I hate them.
