Powerflex Tuneable Engine Mounts PFF5-4650

I installed Powerflex Tuneable Engine Mounts PFF5-4650 yesterday. Fitment was perfect.
This has very little more vibration than stock without 4 black polyurethane insert pins at idle. The vibration disappears during driving. Considering my mod is race seat with floor mats removal, I'm very satisfied with this.
I did't have test driving with 4 insert pins yet.
And, these are about 0.2"(5mm) higher than stock.

I'm going to test these at the track asap.

As far as I know, this has just been released. The information was limited, so I bought it on the basis of the company's reputation.

IMO, not easy, but not difficult. Our M3 has not enough work space to insert pins unlike E46 M3 on youtube. But, It's not difficult to put in and out with grease.

It's only been a day since I installed it, so I can't give you guys more information yet.

Neat. But the fewer moving parts a component has the stronger it tends to be.

I am iffy on long term reliability of "rebuildable" mounts from this brand and another.

Here is new updates after 6 trackdays.

<without 4 black PU pins>
Very slight increase in vibration at idle/stop but no difference in nvh from stock.
The improvement in response and shift feeling of DCT is immediately noticeable, especially in high rpm.

<with 4 black PU pins>
Not yet. Because I was very satisfied without pins, so I didn't test it.
I'm going to test it on next trackday.

IMO, If you use this without pins, I think this kit can achieve both performance and comfort at the same time.
