C4S Engine Mounts

 
I need to replace the engine mounts, just wondering if anyone has any experience using non standard/aftermarket mounts against original equipment and tips on fitting them (looks fairly straight forward from what I can see on the web)
 
Thanks in advance.

    hey 
     
    I replaced mine with rs engine mounts.it does introduce a bit more noise vibration into the cabin but the car feels more precise and the gear change completely different. much more clearer and crisp. 

    About £300 all in to replace at RPM, where I had mine done. 

    worth a go at that cost

    The engine will need to be supported just enough to take strain off the mounts. Not a particularly difficult job with the correct sockets. One central stud each side supports the engine and may need a breaker bar to get started. The bolt can seize on the stud, so the whole stud comes out instead. I believe 3 bolts each side hold the mounts.
