What's the difference between euro and NA e30 m3?

Does anyone know what the differences are between a European and a North American e30 M3?

Yeah, the 240bhp version is the sports evolution.

The standard S14 produces 190HP (I read this in a magazine, don't know if it's completely accurate).

So engine-wise, they were the same (unless evo). 2 more q's then.
1. Was the evo available in NA and Europe?
2. Any other differences (trans., differential, suspension, etc.)?

As far as I know (don't quote me on this) they bolt right up... hell, my friend Rich bolted an '83 3.3L motor to his '84 M10 1.8L transmission no problem.
