Due to engine and exhaust works I found this engine mount broken:
Does it need immediate replacement or not?

You have it out already, I'd say go ahead and replace it. It's not going to last much longer until the tear goes through all of it.

I had to put it back. It is fair to say that all four mounts should be the same?
What about inserts? I read here that ES increase noise and rattle which I dont want. Are there any inserts that are stock comfort?

You can fairly expect that the front mount (under radiator) will be in similar condition. The two mounts on the frame rails will probably be ok. There are no stock comfort inserts available to my knowledge.

As always GSBoek you are most helpful. I will replace front and rear with OEM.

adding inserts doesnt increase noise. you will feel a slightly more vibration in the steering wheel at first. after some time you will get used to it and not even notice it anymore.

Not in my case, I have them two years now and I'm still not used to them. That's probably just me being me though. I don't get used to vibrations.

is that the rear one??? if it is, how did you get it out??? because the rear one is a b!tch to get out. You either have to drop the sub or pull the engine.

its urethane that will adhere to just about any surface
Not with out the correct preparation. Not that I've done it but it is necessary when applying any adhesive, coating, or paint.
