I ended up with the e30 mounts and just redrilled the stud positions to match the mk1 originals.

Thanks for that. But just so I'm clear about what needs to be done - and if it's in my own toolkit and mechanical ability - the E30 mount apart from the securing bolts/studs is otherwise a perfect replacement and needs no further fettling to fit? mike

They are on mine right now and all I did was redrill the stud positions. Tapped out the stud with a hammer in the vice and tapped back in with the hammer in their new position.

Just to say thanks for the advice and the job is now done exactly as described so i can confirm it works. . I'd forgotten how rattles had intruded into drives . Now rattle free car the car did 60 miles over the twisting moors and was a pleasure again to drive.

Does anybody know s if the front fixed suspension top mounts from the mark Compbrakes are a good replacement for the original top mounts ?
Thanks
