Good day gents-

Wondering what the options are for the transmission mount nowadays. Part #LOT-A120A0099J.

I'm finding the OEM one which I'm sure you guys are aware of how expensive it is and Innovative Mounts at a good price point. My concern is sacrificing ride quality going with the latter as my Elise is my daily.

Is there a happy medium somewhere in the depths of the internet that I am overlooking? Or am I going to have to bite the bullet and shell out some $$$ for the OEM one? I find it hard to believe that there isn't something out there in the middle.

The trick is you just replace the rear mount, or the front mount or both with softest innovative mount. Leave the sides alone. I personally don't think that sacrifices any ride quality.

I have front and back, I think 75A back and 65A front. It did increase vibration at idle a little bit, only really noticeable in the rear view mirror. Otherwise no problems, and shifting is improved while driving it hard. I did them both at once, but in hind sight you could probably try the rear first and see if you even want to mess with the front (or vice versa).
