the rack fits but you have to use spacers to make it mate to the body. you also have to shorten the steering knuckle as the output shaft housing is taller then the e30. I wouldn't recommend running a power rack dry. it's meant to hold fluid for a reason. the turn ratio with a stock e36 rack is a bit shorter then e30 but you can even go shorter with an M3 e36 rack. All depends on how you drive and what you prefer. one of guys know the spec difference between the rack. I can't recall.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
