that's the recommended course for the rear. the price differential is only $5/mount or so.

there are also some aftermarket mounts available but they are three or four times more expensive than the bmw h/d mounts.

front strut mounts are available in regular and camber adjusting. i've used the latter on two cars and enjoyed the results - though the cost differential was much greater.

Acually the iC mounts are double the price of entry than the stock ones. Worth it?

In my opinion, NO! They wear out, just like any other stock BMW rubber mount you put in there. Either get used to changing these things out every year, more if you track the car or upgrade to the expensive ones.

I have JT-D ones with the easily replaceable cartridge and two sets of mounts. Stiff ones for the track, softer ones for the street.
