    IIRC it's the 325 one you want. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    I think it is acctualy the same but you could check part numbers here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do

    I have just gone and bought an E36 325 Manifold for my E39 528 and still trying to gather all the other parts I need to peice it together. There is a good work instruction at this web site http://www.team-bar.com/diy_m50manifold.htm

    The results by all accounts look very promising, as long as you have given your car a very good service first. No point trying to up the Bhp if you have injectors that have deterierated to knock your total horsepower. I think the problem with doing this on a 5 series like mine is the air box is very restricted, anyone got any ideas how to improve total air flow in such a confined space?

    I just compaired part numbers of the E36 320 and 325 and they are different. Don't know if the part is different though. I'll keep looking, got c$$k all else to do as I'm offshore...

    they're both different - even the rubber gaskets are different (where they join the inlet on the engine)

    they are seperate - unlike the 328 one's which come in two seperate strips of 3 but the 2.0 litre gaskets are smaller and won't fit!!!
