Yes the head will fit.

It's nicer too, has a couple advantages the pre '96 head doesn't.

You'll need to drill and tap one of the holes for some wiring, because the Siemens uses 2 holes on the side of the head, and the Bosch uses 3.

The, what's known as the "valve pocket," is larger.

So following that, would a M50B30 benefit from an M52B32 head?
