Motor mounts I think $60 each oem, you need 2. Transmission mounts idk. Labor idk, I always do it myself. For parts search on ecstuning.com . Search on google on how to diy if you want to give it a try.

Motor mounts - $80ea
Trans mounts $16ea

If you have general knowledge working on cars you should be able to perform replacement yourself. Also some people opt for M3 motor and trans mounts which are slightly stiffer. The trade off is a little more vibration than stock.

Re: Vibrations!!!!!

So im guessing they are better rated, as long as u can deal with a small vibration... my general knowledge lies in honda/acura.. everything is right there im new to the bmw workforce it looks complex to get around
