Difference between Eurospec E36 M3 and US Spec E36 M3

Other than the motor, does anyone know the difference between the Eurospec E36 M3 3.0/3.2 and US Spec E36 M3 3.0/3.2.
I'm talking about suspension (strut, sways, springs, shocks), also body panels, brakes...etc.
Are the parts interchangeable between the 2 cars?

US 95 m3 vs EUROPEAN/CANADIAN 94 m3


3.0l (289hp), front rotors are the same size but they are lightweight floating rotors.(rear are the same). 6spd was offered as option. NO auto gearbox. Euro headlights, oil temperature gauge indstead of MPG gauge.
that's all I noticed.

The North American spec 3.2-litre, 24-valve with variable timing, 240 horsepower powerplant somehow manages to provide almost identical performance to its European sibling. As for the interior, it lacks cruise control, power seats and tilt steering-wheel and provides tight rear-seat legroom. Euro has 6spd, U.S. has 5spd. U.S. top speed(governed) is 140, euro is 155. U.S. engine displacement i believe is 3152cc while the Euro is 3201cc, torque is 236@3800 for U.S. and 258@3250 for Euro, Horsepower is 240@6000 for U.S. and 321@7400 for evo Euro, i believe that the curb weight of both is 3250lbs. and they r both 24-valve dohc I6. European models also feature floating rotors(two piece rotors that incorporate better cooling through"veins") Thats all off the top of my head. If u want to know more, PM me.

The Euro ones have an oil cooler which the US specs don't.
