I recently bought engine and transmission mounts to replace the mounts that have been in my car since new. The front mount has apparently been modified somewhat since it now has a 987 part number rather than a 986 number. One thing I noticed that I wanted to ask about is that the new mount seems to be much more compliant than the original one even though the rubber in the original mount appears to be slightly deteriorated. This makes me wonder if installing what appears to be a softer mount will result in the car's handling being degraded. Have you had any experience with how the newer mounts affect Boxster handling?
