Only had it 3,000 miles but the engine sounds and feels a little gruff under load and gives the car a sideways shudder when I switch the engine off.

I'm trying to find aftermarket engine and gearbox mounts for my 2007 E280 CDI 4MATIC. There is an aftermarket right engine mount but no company seems to be producing the left one and the gearbox mount is different from the non-4MATIC one so it's also been impossible to find. Maybe I'm searching...

I replaced my engine mounts at the weekend. I6 320 CDi engine. What an unbelievable difference. The n/s one was totally goosed and the dome portion of the top was squashed just below flat. The o/s one was better but not by much. Now the shudder at start and stop is totally gone and things are...
On the above car, thinking about changing the engine mounts as they have done 90k, done a little research on here and over on the Usa forum.
