Great DIY video! I went with the UUC mounts. You sound like Ralph Macchio in the Karate Kid, represent NJ!

I've got a somewhat big thump when going from 1st to 2nd (particularly if the accelerator is pushed down), and vibration going from any gear to 2nd from high-ish speed even if I keep the clutch pushed in. Right before it enters second the mid/rear (transmission area) vibrates. Is it my mounts?
No extra NVH,

Get under your car, if you see cracks in the mount it may be that, check them out it won't take long.

You can't.
I learned how to drive stick in a parking lot.
You wont feel any difference though unless they were bad in the first place. I'd also like to do motor mounts, I want group N but, for $900 no way. When I do them I'll either go with m3 or BWMMs.

Awesome. I need to do FCABs this weekend so I'll take a gander. I hope that's all it is and nothing more serious. Like a subframe crack D: But I hear that is much, much less of an issue on 2003+ cars.

This thump you speak of is usually the differential bushing gone bad

Mines not going so easy. I have an 06 330ci zhp and I have exhaust in the way plus heat shields. I got the cross member off but can't see a way to get the bushing out. There is just not enough clearance to get a socket up on top to get to the nuts.

Maybe if I lower the tranny a little? Would that be OK?

I lowered the tranny are far as it would drop but still no dice. I'd have to remove the exhaust and heat shields so forget it for now. If anybody else has done this job on a 330ci automatic please chime in with a tip. I'd really appreciated it.

Seems you guys don't mind thread necros, so here it goes. I had this same problem. Just too small a space to get the top nuts loose. I am going to get the shop to do it at the same time they drop the exhaust for subframe and diff mounts, guibo and bushing, etc. I would also be interested if anybody managed to do it on an auto without removing the exhaust!
