Boxster transmission mount upgrade

Hello!
I have read alot of forums amd discussions about transmission mounts and I think I'm going to go with rs mount. Rs mounts are little stiffer than the porsche original ones but not as stiff as semisolid or solid ones am I right?

Does anyone know are these mounts any good? They are really cheap compared to oem rs mounts.
Thanks for your help. I'm new in Porsche community and I just bought my first boxster 2.5L two weeks ago and that has been the best thing I have ever bought!

I am looking to do the same as a few members have done so for the reasons you note.

The only problem is the kit you link is backordered with no firm restock date. I have tried to order it through about five different US sites who claim to have it and have been unsuccessful as yet. Maybe design911 actually has one in stock.

Slightly more pricy, I've got the Wevo Semi-solid transmission mounts, I got them from Tarett, I like it and would do it again. I do have the OEM front engine mount though. At idle, it is like a little back massage, so there is a little vibration, but is not there when driving. One time the wire from my camera, that I have mounted on the roll bar, was touching just right and it buzzed like crazy when the car was at idle.

You can poly fill the hydraulic side of the OE mount. I've had mounts like this for 3+ years. Stiffer again and you can fill around the stud the other side. This is a cheap way to do it. Function First charge a small fortune for this.
