    Prior to me buying my 360 the engine mounts has been changed about two years prior. I've had the car 3 years now. Took the car in due to some odd vibration at idle and a horrible low frequency noise. Shop says the mounts are done and are on the secure metal tab. thought they lasted more than 5 years. Anyone had to exchange them around this time?

    I am by no means an authority on the subject, but since no one else chimed in- I believe they are a common wear item. I dont know the typical replacement interval, but I bought my 360 a little over 2 years ago and the PPI said it needed replacing. This was a car that was maintained with an open checkbook and zero deferred maintenence. It was a 1 owner car(til i bought it...) its getting an annual service now at FOS.... if they mention it, I'll let you know!

    I don’t have my CS’s maint records readily available so I don’t know when/if they’ve been changed. Las Vegas Ferrari service showed me my mounts in person and I’ll be replacing them and the cracked trans mount during my next major this summer. May try the Challange mounts. The CS was built on the race car assy line so I don’t mind the extra noise and vibration.

    my 04 360 spider has the original mounts at 45K miles....hmmm. Guess I will take a look next service but no vibration/issues I can detect.

    Can be a function of how car is driven.

    The stiffer mount is like ~$60 each. Just go replace them. Replacing the mounts should increase the rattles at idle. Often the exhaust valves (see spring fix thread) or engine panels (tighten bolts or add larger washers)

    If your upper trans mount is shot I could see that causing the engine mounts to fail that much faster.
