Not totally true. I find the differences in e36's to be similar to the e30. Just today tried to use a clutch master hard line from a 97 in a 94. Bought all new hydraulics and all. If you ever changed the line in an e36, you would know how difficult it is - and how frustrating it is when BMW decided to use a different clip on the newer ones (lines snap in, not screw in).

Shells are the same, but you have OBD1, OBD2, EWSI, II, III etc etc.
