Does anyone know if the Exhaust (i'm talking headers all the way to muffler) off of a 2 door 95 M3 is compatible with a 93 325i. Also, if I get the springs from a 97 M3, will I notice much of a difference (ride height, stiffness, etc.). And finally, if I only install the front shocks from the M3, will that be a problem? i.e. can i keep the stock 325i shocks on the rear? Thanks much

I think that you might have better luck posting this in the 325 forum area, because most people here only modify there M3 with aftermarket stuff. Someone that has a 325 and has done it might be able to tell you. I don't think that anyone in here has tried to put 325 stuff on there M3. Good luck in your search.

exhaust = yes
suspension = not worth it

the exhaust will work, but will no power differnece, just a better sound.
It would be cheaper to grab new springs and shocks made for your car... i would reccomend the cup kit.

DO NOT MIX AND MATCH THE SUSPENSIONS

You don't think I can just put the springs from an M3 all around? And if I did, you don't think it would make much of a difference? Also...it's not cheaper to grab new shocks and springs for my car. That's why i'm considering doing this. If it were cheaper to grab new ones, I probably would have, dig?

i thought the M3 body was just the E36 chasis. I think most of them were 2 door, but a 2 door E36.
