Yes, that's what I've come to understand also, but only just in the last
day or so.  The way I understand it, as it was confirmed to me by my
favorite shop's manager, it will cost about the same to do electronics as
it will to replace the mounts and go old-fashioned.  Therefore the only
savings would come when the old-fashioned ones need replacing many moons
from now.

See above.

I confess, I like having the option of "float or FIRM" and I LOVE
flipping that switch from Automatic to FIRM when I'm in the "mood to
move" and feeling the car tighten up under me!!  ;-}
