Thanks mate,
Carl recommended swapping the solid mounts to the 1s supplied with the car due to excessive vibration. Both are steel and heat shield is present. sump is weeping in various places so prob best to raise engine rather than dropping subframe as ill be doing on drive way now. must off got lucky as this seems a common problem, my last FD was leak free entirely apart from the fuel tank that was always emptying itself! :))
