    Bought new front engine mount

    Does this look right? Because to me it looks like it's in a used and bad condition...

    Bought it from LMF as well...

    I recently put one on mine and it looked in better health than that! Get it swapped!

    I think I'm going to get in contact with them to try and get it replaced...don't want to replace my current mount with something that could potentially be worse

    whats bad about it though? thats what i dont understand. give it a wipe with thinners and the rubber will be clean. the one on your car will be much worse. but its your call! id get the powerflex poly bush for it aswell while your there mate

    It's not just dirty...the rubber doesn't look to be well sealed around the edges (the 2nd picture kind of shows it). I'm just wanna be 100% sure before I change the current mount. As for the powerflex bushes, the tech guide says it's for the F23 only? I got a F17
