Front upper Strut Mount upgrade

Does the XI have an upgraded version front upper strut mount like the RWD Msport which is stiffer than base.

Just get the whole kit from FEAL. You'll save money with all the replacement parts like those that will no longer be needed.

For stiffness, I'd focus on strut tower bars, bushings into ball joints, solid bushings, poly filled bushings, etc.
Strut upper mount upgrades will do nothing but add harshness. It's not something that really adds value to handling if you think about it.

Yeah, it's called the camber plate.
The ride quality will suffer significantly if you go for an aftermarket strut mount/camber plate.
I recommend upgrading the thrust arm bushings first.
