We didn't see a need to use any of the M3 rear suspension links as most are similar to the 335i, minus the lower control arm and maybe one other link. Our R&D stopped there....can't really tell you of all links will swap over.

The front links and thrust arms are much more criticle in keeping alignment in check and get rid some of that understeer.

As with the rear subframe mounts....you are on the right track! This will take away all the funny business the rear-end is trying to do! Minus the dog-leg burnout of course. You will need a Quaife ATB or similar LSD for that.
