I'm new here and currently looking at my friends 86 325 that he has for sale,I have always been a fan of E30's and am really considering getting it but I would like an M50 engine swap, but have a few questions.
1)How easy is the swap
2)What parts are needed
3)Can I reuse the stock E30 5 speed
4)If its too hard can you guys recommend any shops to do the swap

Any help would be appreciated

I would suggest reading that first thread @ the top there. Then you can be the judge of how hard the swap is. That section WILL answer all of your questions.
