M3 subframe bushings durometer rating?

I'm comparing the M3 subframe bushings to aftermarket ones. I was under the impression the M3 bushings were somewhere in the 60's or 70s range on the durometer scale. Can anyone tell me what their accurate rating is? I'm comparing them to black Powerflex and AKG bushings. Amy feedback as to which of these brands is better or worse? Thx

M3 are more like 80-85A, they are very robust.

That is why m3 upgrades start at 90A
