    You want the the normal e36 ones because your control arms are different to that of an M3.

    the eccentric ones are for the 3.0 m3,the rest run concentric ones.you can fit the eccentric ones off the 3.0 m3 and they will give you added caster but you would really need to the get a full set up done to utilise them fully.the 3.0 m3 and the evo run different bushes so its the same for all m3's!

    I have fitted the eccentric M3 bush on my E36 1996 318i. I think there are a total of about 4 different M3 bushes to choose from. All of them are stiffer but not all of them are eccentric.

    The eccentric ones work extremely well on my car and I expect that this will be true for most cars. One could theorise that there may be unpredictable results for cars with exceptional wide tyres. This is definitely not going to bother me at 195!
