Skandix Top Motor Mount alternate to 30680770, review

I just installed one of these:

So far I am 50/50 on keeping it or getting the stock version again. It does quite well at holding the engine still, which my original one did not. The original one had the rubber 90% ripped up and was not doing much.
The down side is at idle - this mount transmits a LOT of vibration. off idle it is fine, but you really notice it at a red light. I am going to give it a few more days until I decide, it may loosen up a bit. I did the same thing on my Mazda 3 and the vibration is worth it for the vastly improved shifting and takeoff from a standing start, but in this case the car is an automatic and had no issues like that to start with.

I have a similar upper engine mount from iPD. The vibration did lessen over time - perhaps a week or so.

Saw reduced vibration when I also replaced the transmission torque mount at the bottom front of engine:

Thanks
I ordered the stock version from FCP today. I'll see if they'll take the old one back. The vibration is driving me nuts.
