Chances are you need them if your W124 idles rough!
I changed them last week and wow, what a difference!
My old mounts were so compressed(the rubber part)they were also 1" shorter and when I shook them, there was a rattle sound! $130.00 CND each/ best investment I've ever made!
Next week, I'll be posting some easy motor mount installation pictures & diagrams.........

Never heard of Hamburg Tech and I have been selling parts for over 2 years.

No telling where they were made or who/what is making them.

You know, it's something thats pretty important for your vehicle so, just pay the money and get original MB parts !
Just my opinion!

yea, but all i hear is how easy the motor mount swap is from the 4 and 6 clinder owners. i want some adventurous person with the 8 cylinder to do the motor mount swap and take plenty of pictures so i know what the hell i will be getting myself into!!!!

UUhhhUMMMM, any takers??? [8)]

and by the way, i killed 2 of my sons fish yesterday when i cleaned their tank. i felt bad. my son took it well for being 6. anyway, just thought i would throw that out there! [:D]

well if they were gold fish... just go to the local pet store and pay the whopping quarter to replace them. but other than that its fine. teach him a lesson. did he forget to feed them? i usually did, but when i did my mom fed them for me. they lasted for about 2 years. anyways... i only have my labrador/retriever right now

Nkpnkp,
I just had mine changed at the dealer and they charged $385. They only changed two. I didn't know there were three.

There is also a transmission mount. Perhaps the dealer is suggesting you do this one as well.

hypper1,
please post some installation instructions and diagrams. i don't recall having mine done so it's probably due.

how much were the MB parts? how long did it take to do? was it hard to accomplish?

maybe, i'll drive over to your place and let you do it for me in exchange for a good greek meal on the danforth ... LOL [:D]

My benz just reached 150,000 miles so I bought new engine mounts for the car from http://www.europartsdirect.com/ which cost about $55 each. They only took an hour to install (two on engine only).

The shipping was fast and the parts were good quality.

It made a huge difference in the shaking and also got rid of a rattle when I start the engine!
