These bushings defintly do there job. Shifting is smoother and bucking inbetween shifts and when flooring it have became less noticible. The engine feels connected to the frame, it move MUCH less now. Down side is the NVH inside the cabin. Noise is increased while getting into first gear, around 1100 RPM, after that its smooth and the noise is gone. Auto transmissions will vibrate more at a stop then manual cars. Also when the AC is on you can notice more noise at a stop. Overall i like the product and the noise is worth the performance to me.

Details

NOTE: We also sell these as individual bushings; please see the drop down menu.

The stock motor mounts do a fine job of what they do, but over time they tend to crack, wear and fall apart. It's a gradual process, but one day it will hit you that your MINI Cooper just feels worn out. One of the firsts things to look at is the motor mounts, as they are prone to crack and deteriorate. It's best to replace them before they tear in half, leaving your engine bucking up and down while making reverse dents in your hood as you accelerate and wonder what's going on.

This kit is a major improvement over the soft stock bushings and will reduce a great deal of movement in the engine which will, in turn, allow more power to go straight to the wheels instead of being wasted on motor mount flex. It's hard to explain how much of a difference this makes but it is well worth upgrading to a more rigid urethane motor mount system.

Kit includes: 4 motor mounts.
Mounts are also available separately.

Note: Pff5-107- Lower Motor Mount Bushing does NOT replace the old mount- these are nested on top of the existing black rubber bushings and reassembled into the mount bracket: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgcEH1jMpsk

*MINI changed the upper mount sometime in early 2005 to a hydraulic bushing. Please confirm via visual inspection if these bushings will fit your year and model as MINI has changed the motors mounts at least once since the car was released.

Customers' comments

I have purchased a short antenna, JCW black grill trim, and the magnetic grill badge mount kit all from Outmotoring. Speed and ease of ordering was fantastic. Couldn't be happier. Will always look to outmotoring first when ordering any parts.
Colin Baker Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

*plasti-cote is your new best friend*
John My hitch for my R53 came in today and 3 hours later it is installed and the car is all back together. The fit and finish are excellent and I couldn't be happier with the product. The only problem I had is that the instructions mention zip ties and replacement trim mount clips but the little Baggie included in my box was empty. Someone forgot to pop the parts into the bag before tossing the bag into the box. Didn't really effect me because I didn't break any trim tabs and I have PLENTY of zip ties.

Thanks for a great and unique product that makes the ownership of our quirky little MINIs even better.
