1991 bmw 320i head gasket and other parts

Hey guys,

Got a question... i looked at an e30 that was imported in from germany... looks like it might have a head gasket issue.. any idea if the parts from 318's and 325's from NA are usable in general? or am i asking for a lot of trouble with a europe car?

thanks

Be sure its not a cylinder head issue instead. m20s are prone to cylinder head cracking...
