Sorry, the body is not the same, and the input from the drive shaft is different. The insides might be the same. I just looked at one from a e34 535i and from a e28 528e and they are different. They are bolted in completely different. Also the e30 has 2 different types of diffs. The 4ers have a different diff that can not be used on the 6er e30s or the e28.
