Putting poly tranny mounts in addition to the poly engine mounts probably wasn't a good idea.
The transmission mounts can transmit quite a bit of vibration on their own, although most say it's best to match the stiffness of the engine and transmission mounts. I briefly ran UUC red poly mounts (non bolt through version) and there was too much vibration for me (and their red poly with enforcer cups caused insane levels of vibration) although at the time I had them paired with stock motor mounts. I ended up with the black UUC mounts with enforcer cups and then later upgraded from stock motor mounts to BimmerWorld's solid rubber motor mounts. This combination is pretty much perfect for me.
