    Hi all, I have another question I hope you can help me with.
    I have brought some Jamex Coilovers for my E36 328 Touring which I'm planning on fitting this week.
    I'm replacing the Topmounts at the same time which I'm ordering tomorrow, but my friend has told order Z3 or E46 Topmounts as they are stronger, is this true?
    Also if I do use Z3 or E46 ones, is it the complete Topmount I ask for, and do I use the Z3/E46 for just the rear or the front also??
    Please can somebody point me in the right direction as I'm soooooooo confused and I need to get them ordered in the morning!!

    get ones for an e46 m3 cabrio, they are the toughest ones about.
    the z3 bit was Z3 reinforcing plates which is a seperate item.

    front mounts will be fine as they are

    Thank you matey!!
    When you say fronts will be fine, do you mean just get normal E36 ones?

    yep, although they might give you e46 ones now, all the same but you need to remove a stud from the top.

    Front mounts are far tougher than the rears
