I didn't mention it in my previous post, but another vote for RE transmission mounts. Have them and haven't had any issues.

You could also get e21 mounts for like $5 (Part # 23711109173). They are cylindrical and use thicker bolts, but don't add any NVH.

This. You have to enlarge the holes on the trans brace by a mm or so, but these are the best non-poly options out there by a huge margin. I don't know why anyone would go with RE over the E21 mounts. The E21 only used a single mount, so they're stout. If you want even more stiffness without added NVH, you can add AKG's e21 aluminum cups.

I was thinking about the 034 motor mounts, they are similar to stock but not fluid filled and a harder rubber which should give some added stiffness without sacrificing NVH and either the UUC tranny mounts with the enforcer cups or the RE mounts.

Has anyone used the enforcer cups with the UUC mounts?

UUC nothing, they're garbage.

Another vote for OE engine mounts (which btw are updated from when these cars were new) and RE trans mounts. Any other setup is silly for a car that is still street legal.

Have you seen the 034 mounts?

https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-5...tor-mount-set/

Also, the RE mounts are 5mm shorter than stock. Is this an issue?

Lol...theyíre short shifter was actually good. The rest is nothing special for pure garbage.

Canít e46s use E9x M3 mounts? Thought I saw that somewhere. But they arenít anything special either.

The e46M was updated to receive the e9XM motor mounts when the e9X came out. If you order the current e46 M3 motor mounts from BMW, you receive the e9XM mounts.

The UUC is worse than the AutoSolutions SSK. But, it isn't as prone to spontaneously break your car as many of their products are :P

As long as you could get those super small set screw in with loctite and not snap them off, the UUC shifter worked great for me.

I got their Wilwood BBK on my 330ci. Great idea in theory...shit execution.
