I have been hearing some noise around corners for weeks now and just thought it was my creeking urathane. But looked in the trunk today and I dont think this is normal.. If so these things go way to often.$$$$:puke:

This is the passenger side which is sitting lower and looks fine

but in the first pic the drivers side mount seems to move around more when I push on the suspension..

Sorry for the blurry pic but you can see the difference..

damn, that dosn't look right...I have an extra one if you want....and mine lasted 270,000km before they needed replacing..so it seems kinda odd.

I heard the ones for the newest 3 series, the e46, work for our cars with no modification. Or you can get the e36 ones, but the e46 ones are the stongest made. Hell go with the solid aluminum ones!

Damn... That dosn't look too good:(
Hell, it probably sounds even worse.
I have the same problem. every 1-2 years I would have to replace them.
Enuff was enuff. I called up Rob from Tuner Works & bought Ground Controllers RSM for $160 (w/shipping)
It has 2 settings. Street & Track. Price may vary cause you have an E30 right?
Hope this info helped

about $40 a piece I think....I have one brand new one if you want it...and a used one that is in pretty good condition too.:)

you should get urethane ones if you're going through them like that...just an idea.
