shocks and brakes compatability ... 84 318i and 85 325e

hi folks .... I am driving my 84 318i and have an 85 325e that i am parting out ... I was wondering if the shocks and brake components are the same as the ones in my 318i are close to toast and the ones in my 325e are all very new?

Anyone have any input on this?

This site appears to be down temporarily, so you might not get immediate results.

Go to realoem.com and input the last seven of your 84's VIN. Locate your brake part numbers, then do a part number application search. If you get results that include E30 M10 and E30 M20 325e then the parts are interchangeable.

There's certainly a fair weight difference between the M20 I6 and any BMW I4 cylinder blocks.

Point taken. This project may expand to swapping over the entire brake system, and I have no expertise to offer there.
