    why don't you get camber adjustable pillowball top mounts - especially if you're going to get coilovers?.. I got mine for around £80 from eBay and they've been spot on!

    these were the ones I got:

    maybe they do similar ones for your car?

    Anyone ever used anything Q-Drive or even heard of this make?? Are they upto the same standard as Lemforder??

    Anywhere else I can get Lemforder or equivalent mounts from??

    Cheers in advance
    Wish i'd seen your post sooner.

    Same thing happened to me, ordered lemforder, Q-drive turned up. When I complained, ECP said it was a catalogue error - and in fairness offered to take the q-drive ones back. They appear to have not fixed the catalogue error -cheeky gits.

    Anyway, Q-drive topmounts fitted in March, and with less than 3000 miles on them are already visibly cracked and have more flex in them than the OEM mounts did at 128k miles. To cap it off, one of the studs has come lose (yep) and that was the last straw. It took a lot of email and attempted calls to ECP but they have finally offered to refund me for these crap quality, dangerous (IMO) parts.

    So, in summary - Q-Drive are rubbish - AVOID them, lemforder from c3 are not even twice the price.

    Let me say again, Q-Drive are very poor quality, and should not be fitted to any vehicles.

    Finally, in case of any doubt, Q-drive from ECP are substandard and nowhere near the quality of OEM.

    Cheers
