    I don't often post on here but read all your posts regularly. After many months of delays, I got round to changing the engine mounts, or should I say mount (passenger side) on my e55. The car feels so much better it is beyond belief. Hence my post! Thought I'd share this!

    Imagine, you wouldn't know yourself if you changed the second one too

    Thanks for comments, The gearbox one was done a few months ago. As for the other engine mount, I was told that it was fine and did not need changing and that the load was mostly on the passenger side mount. Would welcome some comments on this.

    When I had the mounts on the CL changed they where both as bad as each other.

    A few months after the gearbox mount you change the nearside engine mount SO in another few months the offside will need changing. either that or it will be in the middle of next winter! best to do both when you have all the tools to hand.

    Intuitively it's something I would have done in pairs. That said intuition ain't always the way to go :D
