Is it me or does the engine when you speed up a litle in any gear fill like the engine wants to rip its self out of the bay? I can fill the engine move and I have looked but can't see anything snapped or loose? I know it moves a little but this fill like if you where walking along and you went to speed up, it fills like someone pushing your left side, does that make sence?

If it feels like a rear axle is bent it's gearbox mounts.

To confirm either engine or gearbox, here's the drill, one friend, engine hatch open cover off, you observing, friend tries to Gently drive off with the handbrake firmly on, you don't need to actually move the car, just observe the toque, 9movement of the engine/gearbox) both forwards and in reverse, if any of the 4 mount points move excessively there's you mount, replace both.

Mine was gearbox, but actually looked quite good and serviceable when I took them off, but replacing them cured the problem.
