As for engine mounts... I wonder if these would work (they are meant for E30 325i) http://www.vacmotorsports.com/db/images/vac-saemk-e30.jpg

Ok, the stock motor mounts are fine for the 5 series, no need for something heavy duty (this is my opinion.)

As for transmission mounts, you can install the 320i mounts, they are heavy duty and available without breaking the piggy bank. (15 - 20 Cdn each)

Never had a problem on my 535i with the stock engine mounts, the turbo 535i is also running on the stock engine mounts and 320i tranny mounts.

I can get them if you want. They are 21 Cdn each at the dealership.

lol, my friend had two broken engine mounts on his e36 318. The engine was just resting there, but not physically attached except at the tranny mounts.
