Hi I’m in the process of ordereing subframe mounts but not sure what’s best to get ?
It’s for a 98 cooper sportspack and I’m after comfort, quietness and something that’ll last!!

Rear subframe I’m thinking the complete poly set from Minispares this looks good in purple!

The front ? I’ve no idea

Any advice really appreciated

Just to add I’ve looked at the solid front subframe setup but I’ve my concerns about spacing the subframe for the new front end, are the solid ones a direct replacement? As the look chunky!

If you're after comfort and quietness, all original rubbers from minispares. Rear subframe I'd do the same, otherwise you face drumming from the boot panel.

No spacers needed unless something is out of shape.

When you fit it all back, you may not need them, but always keeping in mind that the Shell's weren't exactly precisely made!
