    It's perfectly normal. The Boxer engine tends to shake more than most engines, and as the motor mounts break in and soften up it will do so even more. If it bothers you, you can get hardened motor mounts, but it's no prblem by any means.

    Turn on the A/C and it will shake like a mad man. I have STI motor mounts and the sti tranny mount, shakes a lot less.

    shew!! i have been wondering the same thing about mine for quite awhile now it started doing it at about 3500 miles right after i put on my exhaust & intake and i thought i was fuel related because i seems to cause a sort of rough idle. but the rpms never dropped.

    i guess its a suby thing then. . . these cars are strange but i like it.
