Is he offering a guaranty or suggesting you buy Anchor and install yourself?

If your car is a keeper, consider FCP’s lifetime warranty. Covers parts, not labor.

I wouldn't skimp on motor mounts. I would call it cheap life insurance to pay for good quality and long lasting motor mounts.

I never had a problem with Bap Geon's parts. I don't consider mounts life threatening. Brakes steering different case.
I am just shopping for good price, good warranty

Good price and warranty isn't really going to help you that much if they don't last. It's the labor. Doesn't matter if you're paying someone or doing it yourself.

Top quality Lemforder will cost you about $120 for all three mounts. Corteco which is probably just as good will run about $90 if you search online.

If the motor mounts get bad enough they could be. Cheap parts are cheap for a reason. They're made with cheap inferior materials that don't last nearly as long. While they may be cheap up front, they don't last as long so you have to replace them more often which means you wind up spending more money in the long run. My engineer father always taught me to stay away from cheap mystery parts for these reasons.

Bap Geon doesn’t make parts, manufacturers put parts in Bap Geon boxes. Hopefully Corteco and Lemfoerder more often than Uro.
