The E36 318i sedan used the M42 and M44 engines. You have to cross reference the part number to ensure that it is compatible with the other engine. See below.
You can swap the springs from an M50/52 engined E36 into a 318i. However you cant swap 318i springs into an M50/52 car as the ride handling will suffer. The M5X was a much heavier motor then the M4X motors and thus the springs were quite a bit stiffer to compensate for the additional wieght.
As for interior and exterior parts, they are all compatible between sedans. If you are ever unsure then take the part number and type it into BMWfans.info and it will give you a list of all models that had that part.
