query on e30 cars

are all the front arms , front cross members rear diff housings steering racks nuts and bolts that hole together etc etc the same on all e30 cars

reason i ask is im about to start a build of an e30 from a 325 i model caged shell but have no other parts

so need a donor car is say a 316 e30 the same as a 325i parts wise

i know diffs etc wont be the required items but the general parts ?

Generally yes, only difference on rear beams are exhaust hanging points.

Z3 rear fits , possibility of wide tracking with later models? Not sure wether or not you could make the front legs work too. Want to sell the challenge stuff? :wink:
