      Engine Torque Rod Mount - subframe holes round or oval?

      After 14 years and 116k miles on my R, I figured it was time to replace the engine mounts.

      For those that have done it, are the two mounting holes in the subframe for the torque rod mount supposed to round or are they elongated? I'm the original owner and car has never had any work that would have required the rod to be removed.

      Just seems odd to me and I've spent an extraordinary amount of time looking for and at images of subframes in clutch threads and every other operation, with nothing coming close to confirming or disconfirming hole shape.

      Link to images of the oblong torque rod mount holes.

      If they are supposed to be round, does anyone know where I can buy binocular bolts?

      I just was under there a couple of weeks ago. But, don't remember what the holes looked like. Maybe an FCPEuro video would show the holes?
