E46/Z4 BMW SOLID ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT BUSHINGS - 22116779970, 11812283798

Introducing the Garagistic E46 & Z4 BMW Solid Motor Mount Bushings (22116779970, 11812283798). These solid aluminum motor mount bushings are designed to be a direct replacement for the factory fluid filled motor mounts (OEM BMW part numbers 22116779970 & 11812283798). Our mounts offer significant benefits over the stock units with both increased performance and durability. The factory fluid filled mounts were designed with comfort in mind and while they do a great job at insulating the motor they also allow the motor to move within the engine bay in ways that are less than desirable.

The Garagistic E46 & Z4 BMW Solid Motor Mount Bushings reduce the movement of the engine by providing additional support allowing better power and torque transfer to the rest of the drive line. The aluminum versions of these mounts are the ultimate in rigidity and performance without compromise. Replace your tired, sagging, and/or failed factory motor mounts with the upgraded Garagistic E46 & Z4 BMW motor mount bushings. As with all Garagistic made products these bushings also feature a lifetime warranty.

A quick note about Poly and Aluminum in this application

The Garagistic Poly E46 Motor Mount Bushings are designed to offer the best of both worlds within reason. Our captive floating stud design helps to ensure the maximum amount of vibration dampening possible within the poly material. With that said these bushings are more rigid than the factory units and by default will transfer more vibration to the car. Even so we believe that the benefits of these mounts greatly outweigh the drawbacks as they offer not only increased performance but increased durability and strength over the factory units. We generally recommend the softer 80A polyurethane for most street driven cars with occasional spirited or performance use. The 95A is generally suited for the weekend car and/or one that will regularly see track and performance use. Solid aluminum is uncompromising and does not offer any vibration dampening but also provides the most support. We generally only recommend the aluminum mounts for race or track use only (although we do know a few masochists who will daily drive with these mounts, to each their own, your tolerance to noise and vibration can only be determined by you). If noise is of primary concern we may recommend running the 80A motor mount bushings with a HD rubber transmission bushing.

Engine Mounts installation


Step 1: Jack up and properly support the vehicle on jack stands. Gently rock the vehicle to make sure it wont fall off the stands

Step 2: Remove the top nuts from the engine mounts followed by the bottom nuts

Step 3: Using your jack and a piece of wood, jack up the engine from a safe spot until the engine mounts have room to slide out. Lift the mount until the bottom can slide out

Step 4: The same way you removed the old bushings you will install the new mounts. Slide in the top bolt as much as possible till the bottom can slide into the subframe and register the guide pin on the engine mount to the slot in the subframe so it can sit flush

Step 5: Lower the engine slowly and make sure the top bolt goes through the engine bracket and sit it all the way down.

Step 6: Install the washer and nut on the bottom and top of the engine mount. Torque to 30-33 ft-lbs

Here at Garagistic, we have over 500 products with more than 700 total variations of those products which are produced in-house here in sunny CA. We pride ourselves in creating products from scratch out of about 75 different types of raw materials ranging from aluminum to Delrin plastic. While we do have stock of raw material, our products take time to for us produce, assemble and pack.

Free Shipping Limitations:

Free shipping is only eligible in the contiguous USA. Free shipping only applies to order that meet certain requirements set by us (and can be changed at anytime). Those requirements are currently that an order is over $450 and under the a "Dimensional package weight" of 30lbs. What this means is that roll bars, sway bars, and items we deem oversized do not ship for free. If your order is over this 30lbs rule it will not qualify for free shipping. Free shipping methods are at our discretion and CANNOT BE CHANGED. Most items will either be first class or priority USPS. Free shipping is not valid internationally and this list (but not limited to): Alaska, American Samoa, Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, Northern, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands. Customers will not be able to pick shipping methods (or overnight) if free shipping is selected. Qualifying order total is based on product subtotal—taxes and non-standard shipping charges are not included as a qualifying cost. You are responsible for non-standard shipping charges such as special handling surcharges and oversize fees (where indicated), Truck Freight fees, expedited shipping, hazardous materials charges, etc. Offer is subject to adjustment due to returns, cancellations, and exchanges. We have the right at anytime to revoke free shipping.

International Buyers:

Please be aware that we offer two shipping methods overseas. First class and priority flat rate envelope. Although first class is much cheaper, USPS seems to lag on delivery and there is no way to track the package once it has been dropped off.

There is a 20% restocking fee for all returns. For custom parts (made to order parts like our engine mounting kits) there is a 35% restocking fee. We do not accept returned customized items such as driveshafts and wiring harnesses.

The flat rate envelope is more money but you will get your gears much much quicker and the tracking number shows the package route! (the default shipping method on this site is this option).

If you want the cheaper route, you must email us telling us this and we will send you a Paypal invoice. We are not liable if you do not get your package with this option as we have no way to track it once it's at the post office.
