The rear M3 sway bar is too stiff for non-M3 and you will lose traction unless you have LSD. There are several posts about this. The M3 weight and power are higher obviously and some parts will actually decrease performance on non-M3 and cost a lot to install.

As mentioned above, it's a rabbit hole but don't spend money and time to screw up BMW engineering lol
