AFAIK, they are the exact same mounts, no? I hear of E46 and E36 guys with busted mounts switching to E92 ones since they're beefier, but otherwise direct plug-and-play.

Interested in those diff bushings/mounts perhaps, but I've already heard a lot of negatives regarding comfort with the Vorshlag poly mounts. I hear the nylons are even more unbearable.
I like the engine mounts but it really depends on the person. If you are sensitive to NVH...the Vorshlag mounts are definitely not for you. Especially if you have a 6mt...this is a good upgrade. Shifting is much better under heavy acceleration...much crisper. Helps a lot with heel toe downshifting.
