Default Who wants to go halfsies on a set of MMR mounts?

Been thinking about going hybrid with my mounts for some time.

If you haven't heard of doing this, then: https://www.miataturbo.net/suspension-brakes-drivetrain-49/who-has-experience-one-mmr-engine-mount-one-comp-mount-53548/

So, I want to see if anyone will raise their hand and be willing to buy the second mount off of me if I go ahead and buy the pair. Your obligation would be $30 + shipping as the pair is $60 before shipping.

PM or for faster reply email kotomile at gmail

Man up and go with a set of MMR's like me.
The harshness complaints are over dramatized.

^Lol, what my screen name used to be.


Daily driven? Props to you. Edit: Wait, yours is a weekend fun car right?

We have our opinions but I don't the complaints about NVH are over-dramatized. My set lasted 1 week in my car before I took them out. There's just something about having the whole dashboard acting as a resonator for the engine vibrations that I don't think most people could stand in a street-driven car.

My AC push putton would not stay put. Saggy vents? Oh yes, even with new felt. Not to mention the AC compressor bolts coming loose.

It was my daily back when I bought it. No problems with the a/c button or vents.
Took a week or two to get used to it. After that, the only time I'd notice extra NVH was when driven right after a friend's Miata equipped with lesser mounts.

I only bought a different car to daily because back then I was driving to contstruction sites and was constantly afraid the car would become damaged.

RHarris19 wins, says he happens to have a set and will sell me one of them. Curly - maybe he'll sell you the other one? Worth a shot anyway.

Ben - BTDT. I can handle the MMR diff mounts, the ES urethane bushings, etc, but two MMR engine mounts was too much, I had them in for about 3 weeks and found someone willing to trade for MazdaComps. Too much NVH for me. Maybe you just had a really smooth engine?

Ben's motor has balance shafts. We just don't know it.
