Default Sub frame bushes

Hi, I have a Rover 75 diesel 2004 which requires front sub frame bushes to be replaced. Unfortunately, I am experiencing great difficulties in locating replacements. Rimmers don't have any but they have given me the part number: KGE100441. I would be most grateful for any information on alternative part numbers/equivalents and possible suppliers.

Many thanks Rick

Default Has anyone found a BMW part that matches this?

I'm in need of 6, and at £17 each from Rimmers, it's looking expensive!

Thanks Jon, yeah, I looked at DMGRS first to be honest, but £90 for 6 bushes seems high. I looked through the parts compatibility thread hoping for inspiration.....
I guess not many people have changed these bushes, therefore no one has yet attempted to look for a compatible part from a more mainstream vehicle.

Hi James I can take a look in my boxes in the shed for you tomorrow, I am sure I bought some early last year when I was going to get a front subframe but never did in the end.

Seems like the ideal part to turn into polybush and forget about it after. Has anyone approached one of the companies to make them?
