Does the E30 metal head light bracket fit on an E34? It looks like they are pretty similar but I'm not sure if they are exactly the same or not.

You have to modify them. If I am not mistaken, you have to use the adjustment screws from the e34 lights and put them on the e30 light, assuming that you have complete e34 buckets/lights to use parts from.

BTW, 7 series lights are useable.

7 series are the same as 5 series if I"m not mistaken.

You would need e30 projector brackets.

The low beam itself is the same, but the bracket for the e34 and e30 are different.
