    I can see that they are only listed as up to 1.6 or 1.9d but are they any different?

    So options are:
    1. 182 cup rears £75 and sell the dampers on cliosport for a small amount of money back
    2. Powerflex £50
    3. Sachs parts that may/may not fit £25 with delivery
    4. Keep existing mounts that are still in good condition £0
    For those that have fitted them do the powerflex mounts make any noticeable difference or should they just last longer without affecting ride?

    I'm not too concerned with the longevity as the current standard rubber mounts are holding up ok and I'm not keen on changing the way the car feels (although not sure they will make much difference anyway).

    You put in the power flex you will never need to change them again or worry about them as they are not rubber.

    Not so sure about that :tongueout: they should be good for a far miles/years, but these Powerflex products are not amazing, if i was going to change things on the Meg, i would be going Superpro

    I cant really say I noticed a great deal of difference, saying that I did replace ALL the shocks, in one go, so the whole car feels "tight".
