I had a dogbone on for about 2 weeks and sold it.  I know people say it dies down but you have to wonder why it does that.  Do other components simply get softer? 

In my mind it is not a part that really needs to bed in, if it increases noise and then it goes away after time, another part is taking the strain and weakening.

Anyone got any ideas or concrete theory to counter this?

This arrived from Andy the other day (thanks again) and I fitted it last night. Initial impressions are very good. The change between gears when on / off throttle. Before there was a little jerk sometimes when changing up or down the lower gears but this seems to be done away with now. There is a little added vibration, especially when taking off from a standing start, but I understand this will settle down after a few hundred miles. Overall I'm very pleased with it and think its a worthwhile modification :)

This might be a stupid question, but why wouldn't VW have designed it better if it was such as issue? And Monsta pointed out above, it is a bit concerning where does that tension then get transferred to and would it perhaps weaken other components?

I don't think it's an issue that needs addressing by VW as such, as anything that can be felt during changes is fairly minimal. The stock setup causes no vibrations at all and this is probably more important to 99% of buyers than the additional feel provided by this upgraded version. There are a fair few on the market too. My colleague has had a Revo one fitted to his cupra for several years with no issues.
As for additional strain on other components I can't say, but I would like to think that it would be minimal. The rubber in the orginal bush is still there, so there is still a degree of movement.

They Bed in, the mount settles into place into the rubber. My 034 is silent now, you wouldn't know it was fitted until you put your foot down.
