I am interested in hearing about the difference between E36 and E46 motor mounts.
With stock E46M3 mounts the vibration is not bad at all. I had them on the M44 as well. I wouldn't even say there is much of a difference if any. The trans mounts being UUC black are the lowest tier on their solid mounts. They are ok for DD but around 3K there can be noticeable vibration. I would still run them though personally. If I had the means to easy replace the stock rubber bushings as soon as they got soft I would just stay stock rubber all around. Just because it's still a daily.
