The only reason I can see for the later ones to be unique is the positioning of the rubber in the mount. But I still can't comprehend WHY this is so...

I know about the flipping trick. FYI, basically what it does is position the raised portion of the inner sleeve on the bottom rather than the top, lowering the car. My car is already low enough, so they're going in the way BMW intended.


: Hey Andrej,

: The "pre 74" mounts are interchangeable between left and right - while the later ones are unique (left vs. right)

: I have heard that some folks take the early ones and "flip them upside down" to lower the car. I've never done it - but I'm sure someone here can give you the details as to the how's and why's.

: All the Best!
