Question for those who work at a BMW service center -
Would factory BMW Z3 front struts ('96 - '02) fit E36 models? I know that rear suspension setup is different, but heard that front ones might fit.

If I am not mistaken the entire z3 platform is an e30 frame, leading me to believe the fronts wont work either. Unless you have a ti, which shares the e30 platform.

I was under the impression that the z3 was on an e36 platform, cause my manual is for e36 and z3 and most things are basically similar.

akaik the Z3 is a modified E36 chasis with an E30 style rear suspension
So the front suspension is basically the same? Z3 struts would work?
