M10 rear main seal - Same for E10-E30?

well my engine was rebuilt by the previous owner, and apparently he botched the install of the rear-main, or reused an old worn out seal or something equally as ridiculous.

i started removing the auto tonight but it got dark, i'll continue tomorrow.

so will an E30/E21, manual, 4spd auto etc rear main seal fit a 2.0L M10 with a 3spd?

i'm asking because i'd like to pick one up locally, and people tend to look at me stupid and ask what 3-series a 2002 is... an E30 rear-main should be much easier to obtain.

i'm assuming it's rear main leak because (engine) oil is being flung off the flex-plate through the timing hole, and the behind the inspection cover the plate has a nice coating of oil. i'm guessing it's pretty conventional inside a 3spd behind an M10? any advice or tips you could provide would be excellent. TIA
