It will vibrate a lot. If your worried about it ruining the comfort of you DD I would steer away from them. It only bothers me occasionally. Every other time I just think "because race car" and I feel better. Haha.

You will notice it in the steering wheel. It will prob be slightly different for each car but I know in mine there is a slight rattle of something coming from inside the dash at low rpms. My drivers side mirror also vibrates at idle but stops as soon as you get moving in a gear. The mirror on the windshield also slightly does but not that bad.

It's also a little noisy but you have to figure the point of the mounts is to not lose power due to engine movement so stiffer mounts means there will be more vibration sent to the chassis.

^^ same here

I have a cfm lower for awile now and Vf Engineering passenger side and driver side mount. The passenger side now is good. But the driver side now I do not suggest, bad design.

When I installed it I couldn't even get the top center nut torque to spec because they only made it about a quarter inch deep so it rounded right off with the correct size 6 point socket

When I go to pull the motor and tranny. I'm going to have to b* to get another... but only if they'll Milll the nut deeper
