    I have ordered engine mounts direct from BMW and Lemforder brand from Pelicanparts and they are both identical and had all the exact same markings.

I bought the febi brand for a fraction of Bmw mounts.

    Oh Snap Now I read the e36 M3 motor mounts upgrade. I had polys on my car. The one near the header disintegrated a fews year ago on a Road trip from NY to N.C. Vintage-fest. Some guy helped me out with a stock e36 mount. Now my drivers side poly just went and I got a cheap from Rockauto. If they fail again I'l go with the e36 M3 ones.

I think might have made an adjustment to the nipple on the mount, maybe he just cut it out. Now I just had the poly on the drivers side go. Got one from Rockauto for about $20 bucks. Gonna throw that one in this weekend. I noticed a nipple on that one too. Wish I knew about the e36 M3 mounts before.

    Correct, you just have to grind down the nipple on the e36 mounts

    The E36 M42/4 ones are exactly not direct fit, but they will work. Somewhere in this section I have a comparison pic, and it shows that the locating button is in a different location, although there might be other differences in hardware.

    Internally they are the same.

    Absolutely none.... M3 mounts are just more stout because of the heavier and more powerful motor.... I see no downsides to them. Itís a mount that should have came from the factory. Rockauto has the best prices also.

    started a topic M42 corteco engine mounts

    M42 corteco engine mounts

    Anyone know if the Corteco engine mounts are infused with gel, like the BMW OE mounts are. According to the internet, Corteco is an OEM supplier to European car manufacturers.
