Door handle help

Greetings from next door! I come from the world of the e34 and while I owned my last one I bought the wrong door handle from e bay. It was listed as a handle for an e 34 and being in an allfire hurry to replace it I didn't research it properly visually or by part #. So, I have sold the car and have no use for this driver side door handle. From what I can tell fits an e36 from 92-99 visually it looks identical except for the round wheel on the end of the arm that sticks out (all I have seen stick out farther) I suspect that this may be a euro version but when I have tried to look it up by part number I am unable to find it listed anywhere. 5121-1960 801. Please take a look at the pics and if anyone can tell me what animal this belongs to I would be forever grateful. Also if anyone needs the handle please contact me and we can work out a deal I'm sure. Much Thanks!

door handles are different between coupes and sedans, and, iirc, there are differences in early and later models with regard to interchange. i doubt that this will fit 92-99 model years....it may only fit a few model years.


and i ran the part # through real oem and came up with nothing.

As it turns out the door handle IS for an e34, but only a 92-95
