I installed the e46 ones from Rogue, they added no NVH and improved shifting. I'd recommend those

Sold a few UUC transmission mount bushings recently, may be something to consider.

They'll fit onto an e92 no problem? ECS claims they don't.

Thank you! I'm not saying the are perfect option but for the money are pretty good! I drive my car literally every day and track it on average twice a month from April to Oct and these have held up well.

But you are saying if I buy these, I wont get under my car, take out the OEM mounts, and find that these are not going to fit? haha

It's really funny to look at the parts number cross search on RealOEM for BMW transmission mounts. They generally utilize the same design all the way from the BMW e28/e30.

Is not only for transmission mounts and not only BMW. If manufactures were coming up with completely new designs every model year we would not be able to afford the cars.

True, but transmission bell housings change in length over different chassis/engine configurations. Instead of changing the design of the rubber mount, they change the design of transmission mount brace.

In case of different chassis and engine configuration the transmission mount brace was going to be different regardless. Usually old engines are carry over into a new chassis that is made to accept both new and old engines thus the brace having to be different.
