It is the same as exhaust, what one person thinks is great another thinks is too loud.

The other thing with RMM is that people get used to it/the mount gets broken in and the vibrations drop, so even one person testing a bunch of mounts wont give a complete answer unless they drop each mount for a couple tanks.

I have CS inserts in my RMM and I'm feeling like I'd like more than that.
This for sure. Here in Fayetteville, everyone is a 40 year-old woman that drives a sedan.

I installed an E-Focus mount in my car after a long time on the fence between the E-focus and MS3 RMM. Very glad I went the way I did, as I don't think the MS3 would have made as much of an improvment.

I find it adds a very small about of NVH at idle and very low RPM [read under 1500RPM], but stiffens everything up and reduces drivetrain lash on hard launch. Mind you, there is still some wheel hop if you beat on in, so it isn't a miracle worker or anything.

TL;DR: E-Focus RMM is a happy medium for a DD and probably the best bang for your buck.

That's the only mount they sell for the ST, they didn't make a "stage 1" mount.

yes, the part I am worried about is where it attaches to the transmission, but the cp-e is almost straight like the NA not curved like the ST stock one, so 90% sure it will work.
