335is front sway bar options?

Does anyone know the size of the front sway bar on the 335is? I am thinking of upgrading to the E93 M3 front sway bar - can anyone that's already done this give me some feedback please?

Stock is same as other 3 series sway bar. It tapers down in the middle.
I have e92 m3 sway bar and I am very happy with improved steering and cornering feel.

Why did you go with a e92 M sway bar and not E93 M?

Stock 335is is about 26.75mm with a few inch section in the middle just over 23mm. I switched mine to the Dinan sway which is about the same size but no neck down in the center. Seems to corner a lot flatter now and really tracks to the changes in the road. I'm sure part of the improvement is coming from the stiffer coils that came with the Stage 2 upgrade.
