Also providing link to DIY that seems to work the best with the least hassles.

No I didnt see the link. It blows my mind that people are buying an engine support bar for this job. I dont get it, why? The bar makes the job SO much more difficult as when you lower the engine onto the new motor mounts you have to be under the car guiding the brackets in, now you guys made it a 2 person job with your bar.

No , they are correct. I was wrong.


Its getting out of control guys , 330i ZHP said it BEST.

If you guys are so worried about such simple job as this, have a priest bless you along with your car before you start
