Hi there, I am on my 3rd set of front strut top mounts on my R56 cooper for failing its mot. Has anybody else had the same problem or can you get uprated mounts.

Genuine MINI or Lemforder (essentially same as oem but less expensive) mounts
seem to work and last much better than some other brands.

Got them from the dealer, they say they are splitting around the top. I was not sure if this was a common fault or just normal wear and fair.

3 sets in how many years?

The parts have a warranty, they're clearly not fit for the purpose they're intended :)

Sorry no photos. Never thought about the warranty side just put it down to wear and tear and to be honest I wasn't to bothered about paying for the repair but I have looked at a couple of others recently and they were very similar. I just wondered if this was a common problem or perhaps an eager mot tester.

Aren't worn top mounts indicative of duff shocks?

Yes it's an indication that the shocks are on their last legs in some cases.
