The rubber strut top mounts need to go. The for and aft movement in these have large deflections as well and with the combination of the stock lower control arm mean huge under steer when pushed hard. I am finally on the last leg of the road getting this best to handle at the track.

I am sure you did your home work, but you left out the front thrust arms! That is a major weak point in the 335i and can cause the car to lose much needed castor!
