Suspension 335 Vs. M3

Maybe somebody can clarify for me? I was wondering if there is any difference in the front suspension on an M3 and a 335? I know the shocks and coils are different but are any of the control arms or spindles different?

The design is the same but in reality the M3 is a different car. Some front suspension parts are swappable from the M3 to the 335 with no modification. Front sway, front control arms/tension struts, strut tower brace (everything that matters basically). Not dampers however. There's a lot of topics on M3 suspension conversions around here so make sure you run a search and see what comes up.

Swappable parts are as follows:
Front control arm kit
strut tower brace
front sway bar

I think that is all I can remember right now.
