Hi team!

I've been doing a ton of research but I can't get a straight answer from anyone. I'm trying to understand what is the best engine mounts for the r171 SLK 55 AMG.

It looks like I have a few choices but if there are more please let me know!

1) stock replacement (Lemforder?)
2) black series
3) East Coast Euro
4) VRP
5) German Muscle

Also, should I stick with the oil filled mounts or should I go poly, and why?

I'm installing long tube headers so I thought about doing this while there. If you have recommendations for transmission mounts, that would also be amazing! Going to do everything at once.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! :D

I bought mine from NeedsWings.com - "AMG Performance Engine Mount Set" ($389.95).



I also bought the gearbox mount, same thing AMG performance. Can't find the invoice for that though, so not sure what I payed for it.. MIGTH have been included in those $390.. ?

My OEM engine mount failed within the first 10,000 miles. At 40,000 miles now, and the engines starting to twist in the bay. I'm thinking about getting poly mounts now.
I changed my motor mounts after 4 years from purchase 69000 miles
