According to the realoem diagram, there are two part numbers for no. 6:

ASA-BOLT WITH CIRCLIP (M12X1.5X39) qty 1
&
TORX BOLT (M10X16-10.9-) qty 2

...It doesn't look like the mount itself is fastened with 3 bolts, but that might just be the picture. In any case, both parts appear to bolts. Are these what I need to mount this on a 335 and still clear the plastic cowling?

Lastly, should this be installed while the car is in an allignment machine?

No, #4 is what you should worry about. See where #5 is? Use a bolt there, not a stud. The hole next to it as well, use a bolt not a stud. Otherwise the cowling will have a hard time seating correctly as there is no relieve for the studs or bolts. The bolts will have a lower profile, thus more clearance to the cowling.
