Hey guys im new to maxbimmer
I'm looking at getting an e30, just love the look and handling :)

My question is is there any difference in swapping a m50/m52 into a 318is vs 325is? for how hard it is or parts that can be reused.

Stock 318is suspension wouldn't be ideal for the added weight, the shocks/struts have a smaller diameter. On the 6cyl cars they offset some weight by relocating the battery to the trunk.

It's not a show stopper, but getting the suspension from a 325is would be better.
