E46 mounts are a good move, but just FYI I’ve been extremely satisfied with the Rogue mounts on my car. It’s 6AT so there isn’t as much lateral slop to begin with, but regardless WOT shifts feel firmer and more direct. I believe D’s UUC mounts broke because they were poly, and he drives like a madman.
RobC also has the rogue mounts, he did a great DIY on them over on the other forum.
A worthy upgrade, especially for a stage 2 car. My stock mounts were getting pretty mushy when I replaced them at 51xxx.
Good lookin out! Just read the description on HPAutosport's website. So how good are they in terms of NVH? Yours being AT might make a difference too, I dunno. Their website says its "not required or necessary for auto or SMG tranny". "
Im replacing my clutch very soon and want to do everything I can while Im in there; one being the trans mount. I was going to use a brand new E46 M3 trans mount since I read that it is stiffer than the OEM 335i one and I read that the UUC black mount failed on Dzenno's car. Thoughts?
I wasn't aware the UUC mount failed on his car, and also wasn't aware you could use the old m3 mount. I would say first and foremost it's just important to do something there, if you like being able to hit second gear, and you like to keep your drivetrain straight. "
Well finally came time to replace plugs and guess what. The idiots at crown bmw in Greensboro Nc scored again. Seems like the last time this vehicle had the plugs replaced they only replaced 5 instead of six. They stripped the threads on the plug. What besides taking it to the dealer can be done to pull the plug out. Is there a specialty tool for this .
Thanks in advance for any help with this problem.
How does a dealer that does this stuff all the time screw up like this? Seriously? "

+1 My stock trans mounts were pretty crappy looking/feeling when I replaced them with the rogue mounts at 84k miles. "
Getting negged really isn't that big of a deal. It's only half the points of your rep power. Most of the people negging randomly in these threads have low rep power to begin with. Just don't piss off Sticky and a few others with real power and you'll be good. Also, most people with more rep power don't go throwing negs for no reason.
So far, LM's the only person that's really gone on a tangent and targeted people - he had FAR too much rep power for his attitude
then he was let back in, and was fine for a while, now he's slipped back? I was told to harden up when i complained last time, at first too. lol. "
