No can do, sir.
But that shouldn't stop you from placing an order since the mounts are available is standard height as well (no engine drop).

With so many configuration of headers, turbos, downpipes and exhausts available, there simply isn't a way for us to test them all and verify fitment with the drop mounts and thus we have to leave it to you to make the call.
To check clearance for the drop mounts, I'd recommend jacking the car up and using a 1/2" thick piece of something as a spacer to slide between things that can hit and see if there's a half inch to spare going downwards.
If you find that even with a 1/2" drop things clear with ample amount of room, consider the drop mount a good option.
If you're unsure, go for the standard height mount.
Simple as that.

I assume these will have a prominent Blackbird logo to match my rear spoiler?

Keep up the good work.

No logo on those, should be able to tell right away that this is a BFW product

I'll be interested to see if the drop mounts work with the TSE turbo system. Might still order them since I'll be N/A for a while.

I have to say, Moti outdid himself on these. They are so pretty it's almost a shame to mount them up, I almost want to just bolt them in right next to my matching Pearl Gun Metal GT3 roll bar.

Here's some photos for you folks. This is the standard height (non-drop) "low NVH" mounts.

Not yet. I've got to swap out the Fab9 mounts and will report back once the BBFW are broken in.

Plus, I've got a shot driveshaft that needs replacing

Throwing in a set of low NVH, no drop, engine mounts into my street/track toy today. Cannot wait to give it a go with these!

I can report the low NVH drop mounts are compatible with the factory MSM turbo brace in case anyone cares. I had to move the mounting points of some coolant reroute bracket because the motor sits down and slightly forward to the way it did but otherwise, it looks good. I'll do a short test drive sometime before I load for MRLS and will know if there are any hidden issues just in time for Moti to help me fix them!

To be perfectly honest, I don't have any cars with NB mounts so I wasn't entirely sure. The turbo brace borrows two of the four mounting points on the motor mount so there was at least some question. I discussed it with Moti before I ordered and we agreed I would post my results in exchange for 'oh ****, it doesn't fit' insurance...

Hahaha!
We haven't had a chance to make sure that the mounts fit on the MSM, so Brian was a good candidate to try it out and get the feedback.

Any feedback from people who've installed the low NVH no drop mounts? Could you also PM me a price shipped to a business in jersey? Thanks!
