    First post so hello all and be gentle

    The car is in the garage having some coilovers fitted. Just had a call to say that he cant fit the fronts due to the coilovers not fitting the top mount.
    I think he is saying that when putting them in, not enough is coming out of the top mount to enable him to bolt them on.

    Now someone told me that very early E36s had different top mounts to 1992 onwards. Just wondering if that right or not, and if not, what can we do?

    Thanks all

    Early e36s do have different top mounts, this is most likely the problem you have come across, they changed from 06/1992 onwards
