Default For those on BC's- Pillowtop or Rubber?

Have read many threads on this topic and it yielded many different opinions.

Are the rubber mounts associated with the "clunking" noise?

Is there no true benefit with pillowtops on the 2is bc of the double wishbone suspension?

Please post your experiences. Its not a "track only," car but I would like do it occasionally for fun...

I chose to go with the pillowball mounts because I read they supply you with better "feedback". I do have minor cold-start squeaks in the rear with them; but once warmed up, they're silent again. The benefit of the rubber is no noise.

You won't find many pillowball comments from 2IS owners I'm sure because most don't realize there are options and most are just concerned with MOR LOW!
