Stock motor mounts are filled with a vibration-dampening fluid giving them a hydraulic like absorbency. Mounts go bad when the fluid leaks or evaporates from the engine mount, leaving a rubber block that is far too flexible and "squishy" to do a proper job of supporting the engine. Once the engine mount fails, it causes engine shaking, vibration, as well as unwanted driveline twisting. This twisting action will harm the rest of the drivetrain bushings (like transmission and differential mounts) as well as the metal motor mount arms that hold these in place. In some cases the engine can twist far enough to cause contact with other components (such as a fan into a radiator or a belt into a hose).
This part is manufactured by an aftermarket supplier of European auto parts, including many rubber components. While not carrying OEM status, this part follows the design of the original very closely and uses similar materials. An aftermarket part may even have the same TUV approval as its OEM counterpart. The brand may even be OEM to another manufacturer besides BMW. This aftermarket brand has a two year warranty - the same as Genuine BMW and OEM brands.
