Define "better ones than OEM" a bit more? What "better" do you want? Do you want solid mounts? Do you want quiet mounts? Do you want cheap mounts?

I am looking for more solid ones, but not so hard I am vibrating the entire car.

Innovative Solid Mounts. But they will cause some cabin vibration. Its not as bad as people make it seems.

it's my daily, so I still want to enjoy driving the car. also my wife rides in the car so I want her to feel comfortable. I can just feel the motor moving when I'm accelerating and not putting the power down for the first initial second.

I drive it daily,and drive my wife around, so I want to have some amount of comfort. I can just feel a and see the engine move, and the power is not going to the wheels initially so it's makes this weird acceleration feel.

The best recommendation would be to go with OEM mounts; they ain't cheap, but they are the absolute best combination between comfort and stiff; that and they are typically good for an easy 100,000+ miles unless you regularly beat on the car.

replace your engine torque damper since your a 6spd car, it'll help! Side mount cushions a/c vibrations and the rear cushions almost all engine vibrations. If you want stiffer mounts get the for the front and side, but stick with softer OEM rear for comfort.
