We installed brand new mounts in my buddy's car. Even then there's still some side-to-side movement which I now believe is normal. What you don't want is front-to-rear movement. I believe that is how the motor mounts for our 4 cylinder cars work.
If there is squeaking your subframe may be cracked.
6 cylinder mounts are altogether different and don't allow that side to side play. Just in case you're comparing it to your buddy's 325i or something.
