No dude, not even close. Non- ///M e36's can't even support them without modifications, never mind an e30.

^^^ I had heard (from random sources) that the 1995 M3 (3.0L) and the 328i were very similar. In fact, they said that the exhausts were interchangeable. Am I crazy for believing that?

Nope. They are indeed interchangeable, but you still have to grind off the mounting studs for the hangers, replace them with longer bolts that can accommodate the beefier M3 hangers. Same story with the 325; that's what I had to do when I went with the M3 catback. Some people use the stock hangers, but they break in no time due to the heavier weight of the M3 muffler.

so the catback won't fit in a E30 then, too bad, below are pictures of it. i thought it would be a cheaper upgrade for my car.

Stock mufflers for e36's just went down in price, maybe it's the same case for the e30's. Might wanna check that out.
