Depends whether you're a Georgia grad or a Georgia Tech grad.

Go Jackets!

I have a 96 E320 3.2FI engine not sure how that translate into German. I was hoping to get referred to a certain brand known for their durability. I plan on handing car down so I would like to consider the long term. Im not a grad from either by the way.

OE lasted 13 yrs; I'd suggest going that route again.

Click Fastlane link about.

Good, UGA grads shouldn't attempt anything technical. You have the M104 in-line 6 cylinder.
You can do all of these jobs yourself if you have good instructions. I think the motor mounts may have tight access on that engine. Actually $550 is a fair price for outside work: sounds like about half for the parts and then 3 hours of labor.
The parts I checked here are from German aftermarket suppliers (Corteco, Meyle) - I can't say who the actual OEM was.

$550.00 is parts only. I have already changed the mounts myself and went with OEM since I plan to hand down the vehicle. Im less concerned with flex disk and tranny mount since lion share is completed. There are some local retailers but they are no considerable difference from the dealer. I will look online again then make a decision. I was just wondering what afm brands were reputable.

Meyle has been an aftermarket German supplier for at least 50 years.

have fun doing the mounts and flex disks yourself, just let the dealer do it, motor mounts are no walk in the park and neither is the flex disks

But he's already done the motor mounts, which are more difficult than the flex disk.

Update

Well I figured the rest would be a cinch as well.I got my part in but I am having the toughest time breaking the bolts on the flexdisk. I put an air rachet to it but its not enough torque. I cant get the impact hammer in with enough leverage to prevent slipping. Im callling it a night and starting fresh in the morning. Im hoping the penetrating oil will have time to sit overnight and loosen it a bit. Im always open for suggestions. I don't see how to hit the top 2 bolts either. I trust I have to slip car into neutral and rotate drive axle around until bolts are exposed. Good night guys and thanks thus far.
