m42 engine mounts

Postby Adam Gardner » Sat Oct 05, 2013 12:20 am

im after a pair of new engine mounts for my m42 engined rally car build, seem to remember that e28 m5 mounts fit and are supposed to be stronger. i have looked into this and struggled to find a definate answer/ part number.
these are offset pinned type mounts and wondered what other m42/e30 owners were using??

Think the e34 m50 ones are a fraction of £80, they are very solid and work well with early 6 series gearbox mounts.
We've had them on a 180hp m42 with a 5.1lsd, Avto uses them, and they were in the regs for the german 318is rallye challenge.

Not used them on a six pot mind.

Thanks Adam, we aim to please!
Engines are standard M42, only mandatory mods being Schrick cams and a control ECU resulting in about 155-160 hp. Transmissions are either standard E30 'box and 5.44 final drive or standard E36 'box and 4.44/4.45 final drive. LSD is mandatory :D Springs and dampers are free (non-adjustable tho) as is the steering rack. Calipers are standard, pads free, no GRP wings or macrolon windows.
Spec tire is Vredestein Quatrac 3 all-season (195/65 R15), works quite well on gravel and costs 65€ :D

Complete tech regs here (German tho): http://www.rg318is.de/index.php?option= ... &Itemid=58

Am i missing something here?

Rang up today to try and order some mounts 11811133364

There £33 + Vat? 39.6 EACH

So £79.2 for a pair compared to PDL motorsport proper ones for £80

For the 80p extra they dont compare?

Of have you got somehere to get them cheaper???? :shock:

£15 each at euro and probably still are. You used to be able to specify the aftermarket brand you preferred to avoid getting a dodgy quality.
If you put in e34 engine mount in ebay you'll pick some `Febi' ones up for less than £15 each.
Bear in mind, we were originally talking tuned 4 pot m42's, not six pots.

as above really, im in the motor trade and think they cost me around £10 each for febi bilstein items, i like having a bit of movement in the rubber mounts or the alloy engine mounts to the block just take all the loading.
