The IX reservoir is mounted on top of the master cylinder just like the regular E30's.

If you are doing a M50 swap which I might suspect, you can use the IX booster but you can use a remote reservoir from a e32 740i.

The IX reservoir is different than a standard e30 reservoir. Beyond the basic difference in spacing of the nipplies between a Girling and ATE master cylinder... the IX is slanted around the area where your throttle body hose goes to so that it clears. An yes a remote reservoir from a v8 e32 / e34 is a better choice.
