I'm using the e32.... 740i brake booster and master with a 2002 reservoir. Requires a little modding. You hafta slot the holes in the pedalbox/firewall about 3/4".... then take the clevis mount off the stock booster, cut about 5/8" off the e32 clevis and weld the stock clevis on there. That will get you lined up perfect with the clutch pedal. Just tweak the factory hardlines a little bit and your set :) The brake power is INSANE!!!!!

I'd also like to add that if your faint at heart about wiring, and the akg pin to pin chart merely gets the car running........I mod harnesses so they look like the m5x/s5x obdI engine harness came in the e30 from the factory..... for $150 shipped back to your door. If you provide the c101, c104(early models), and the 3 prong plug for the oil level if you need it I do it for $120 or so depending on my mood. Normally cheaper. I label all the sensor plugs so you aren't guessing what is what.... I also wire up the data link, si reset, check engine light, and all that stuff as well. :)

Thats a really good deal to not have to go through all the hassles. I might get you to mod one when I get to do my swap.
