Easy, does your ignition barrel look like this one?



If it does then your key has an EWS chip in it. You will also need the EWS module and engine ECU:thumbsup

The engine and box will fit straight in without issues. Would be a good time to replace and upgrade the engine mounts. If you do not get the parts that I mention then you need to walk away as it will not start if a single component is missing.

The chip from the key is easily removable so long as you take care:thumbsup

I'm not sure of the differences between your compact prop and the 318is as the compact uses an E30 rear set up:frown
