The M3 rods look SO much higher quality than the 335 pieces. It looks like this will go a long way in keeping the rear suspension geometry optimal under load and in transitions. This might be especially useful in my case due to the excess rear weight (cabrio).

I'm looking forward to hearing more about install process on this as I likely will do this upgrade in conjunction with a Quaife and rear subframe bushings in January.
The Guide Rod Kit is even easier to install than the Tension Rod kit. One 18mm head bolt and one 18mm nut and bolt, out comes the guide rod, installation is reverse of the removal, move on to the other side and repeat!

I wold say after the wheels are removed...no more than 10-15 minutes per side, maybe less if you are quick! No need to align the vehicle after replacement.
