Engine / driveline mout question
 
I have a few symptoms of engine / transmission mount wear but am having a hard time finding the right parts (they are different from non-xi) also, has anyone else replaced the engine / tranny mounts on an xi? Are they more or less prone to wear than on a 2wd car? Is the transfer case bushing worth replacing?

Here are the parts I found:
xi left engine mount : 11-81-2-283-798 ($50)
xi right engine mount : 11812283798 ($85)

Here are the parts I am not sure about***********:
Transmission left side : http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325xi-M54_2.5L/ES2739/ (pelican lists it as a VW/audi part????)

need to find right side transmission mount

Transfer case mount I found but all ready lost the P/N (about $80)

So is that the correct transmission mount? Where do I find the right side mount?

Xi's use an M3 motor mount on the drivers side and a XI specific mount for the passenger side. There are no transmission mounts found on the XI.

Here is your engine mount info... LINK

And here is the trans mount info... LINK

AutohausAZ has your engine mounts. A google search on the trans mount # confirms your find at ECS. It appears it has multiple uses! Note the discontinued part #'s on realOEM... the new mount # could very well be intended for cross platform use.

You can use a E90 M3 mount for the drivers side.

Thanks for the links, the transmission mount listed actually fits in the transfer case, meaning there are no mounts that attach directly to the transmission. I did a google search for the Trans mount # (22316773125) and did not anything that looks like that part on ecs tuning (which is a VW/Audi engine mount). I think they mislabeled that part as going on an XI, looks like they also have it listed as a trany mount for other E46's.
