Trying to source the 2 bottom mounts for my 2ltr estate. The car is french registered so l cannot do a search under reg.
Any suggestions for suppliers?. I tried a guy in uk for 2nd hand ones but they were worse than those on the car. Desperate as I think the car is brilliant but want to stop the vibration.

The standard mounts are pretty awful, but you can remove them and fill them with a liquid rubber type material called Flexane. It's about £40 and comes in differing durometers, depending on how stiff you want to go. The whole tin should be enough to do all 4 mounts, but you'd need to take the car off the road for a day.
