There was a guy that just converted his 318is to an m62.
Check the e36 section.

If I remember correctly, he had to modify his steering rack, re route ABS and some other stuff.

I can't remember the exact name of the kit but I think it's Horschlag or something. Sounds like a nice swap...

^^^ I LoL'd too. I'd love to do an LS1 transplant, but time constraints ruled in the favour of an S52. if, and when I do decide to build another E36, it'll be with the "Horschlag" kit.
