We replaced all of them(motor mount/console , trans mounts) on the families 01 base around 50k. They were shot, and the cars see no agressive type(autoX, track, etc.) driving either. The difference was like night and day afterwards. Before, the drivetrain felt like it was shifting around. The car is more solid and connected now, eliminated alot of vibrations, noises, shifter slop. I was somewhat hesitant at first on the trans mounts, but after doing some measurements, found the originals had collapsed but not started to leak yet. The motor mount was cracked and starting to separate. They are not too bad of a DIY task.

regards

How many mounts are there and can you recommend on which one to start on ? I noticed one on Pedro's site, would this cause it, i can not find any others.

There are 3 mounts, 1 motor and 2 trans mounts. I'd start with the motor first. Porsche has upgraded the part and has improved it over the older version. If you go under the car with due caution, you might be able to see the cracking. Its tight in there though.

Hello there, I have a 99 boxster and get a loud clunk noise only when shifting from 1st to 2nd, do you think this could be the transmission mount?

You might check your motor mount(console, see pic-bad mount with 50k on it) first. Porsche has improved the part and they seem to be much improved now. Its also worth checking your trans mounts as they have a tendency to collapse over time and let the drivetrain slop around.
