Yes, much less. M3 control arm bushing failure is rarely heard where as the non-M E8x and E9x happens as early as 40-50K miles.

Just the name. Same product. BMW parts will carry at 12 month 12,000 mile warranty and the TRW's will not, then again these arms are tougher than that and will easily last a few years.

I noticed theres an option to have you put the bushings in. Does this mean the bushings come to me normally not in the arms and will need to be pressed in if I don't choose the $60 option?

No, that is for the Rogue Engineering upgraded bushings.
