Honey I shrunk the motor mounts

Guys change your motor mounts after 70K miles. This is how mine looked at 104K miles, compared to brand new:

New one on the left, old one on the bottom

New on top, old one bottom

They're not! Huge difference in the way my car drives now, compared to before.

Anyone have any experience with the Vorschlag poly ones? I'm looking at getting the poly engine and transmission mounts.

The red Vorshlag will transmit some NVH. I run them on my turbo E36M3. I tried Rogue mounts on my E90M3 but they transmitted too much NVH so I changed to Corteco, which makes the stock mounts but cost less than from BMW. If I could have raised the idle speed to 850, they might have been fine. It was only at idle they bothered me, but it was enough to make me change them. I am guessing the Vorshlag are similar in NVH to the Rogue.

+1! I'd stick to oem motor mounts. Nothing wrong with them, and they made it to 104K miles on my car ok, so why not? I bought vaico (?), and they are working just fine, and even cheaper than Corteco.
