Vibra Technics Engine mount discounts

The Discount period is now over.


I was reading a thread on M3 Forum about these engine mounts for M3's and M Coupes/Roadsters. The people that have them installed rave about them. Here is a link to the US distributor.

Here is the thread on M3 Forum where all the information can be had:

Interlagos08 was able to set up a coupon code to get these mounts at a steep discount. He gave me permission to share with all of us here.

The discount is good until January 13th.
The price is $260 for a set!! shipping included. Normally they are $404 for a set.

Just send a Email to Phil at Vibratechnics (His email is vibratechnics.leic @ gmail.com) with this Code in the header
Z4M0113 Discount Buy


If you read the thread on M3F, our code is different so that Interlagos08 can track where the orders are coming from. It sounds like these would be great for FI and NA cars, also they are rebuildable. They have a street version and a race version.

Any questions can be asked on the M3F thread. All I did was get permission for us to get in on the "group buy."

Here is some info on the performance of these motor mounts:
(Comment from Vibra-Technics at Bimmerforums)
"Just to give you some background, the engine mount was originally designed to overcome the inherent weaknesses of the BMW design, mainly that the mount peels apart at the top due to tensile forces caused when the engine is on load. We developed our parts specifically to work in motorsport applications and during the development process we had parts on BMWs running in the German VLN at the Nürburgring (4 hour endurance race series) as well as the Britcar 24hr. The first mounts were supplied at the beginning of the 2010 season and to date after two full seasons racing and hundreds of hours of testing there has not been one reported mount failure. This mount is also the only aftermarket engine mount that is approved for the BMW Compact Cup series in the UK. The fast road version that you have carries over the hardware design of the motorsport part but the rubber insulator is specifically tuned to give good vibration isolation performance within the engine running range.

To answer the questions regarding the construction, the main components are machined form a 100mm billet of T6082 aluminium. The insulator is first grade vulcanised natural rubber and is completely failsafe within the mount body. The mount is also capable of being rebuilt. The weight of the mount is 750 grams against the weight of the standard mount of 800 grams."


From the Vibra-Technics website:
"Vibra-Technics have created this mount to give the “sporty” feel back to M3. It is ideal for track day cars or drivers who want a race carfeel to their road car.

The engine mount has a billet machined housing and a rubber insulator at its core. It is completely fail safe making it ideal for competition car applications. "


It has been recommended to get the road mounts unless all you do is track your car.
