M3 toe arm

Will the M3 toe arm fit on the 335 and will it benefit or hinder performance. I am going with full M3 suspension with KW V2. This car will be tracked but not dedicated, more street driving than track...

Do I really need to change them? Only reason I was going with the M3 ones was because I bought everything else i.e. control arms, guide arms, and sub bush...

I did an entire M3 swap on my car including the strut brace kit. Your call.

If you're going to lower your car more than an inch you may not be able to get toe into spec when aligning w/o aftermarket toe arms. Megan racing is your best bet.

M3 rear toe arms are too short when compared to the stock 135i/335i arms. The reason for this is different subframe and wheel hub mounting points.

The options for upgraded adjustable toe arms are from Rogue Engineering, Megan Racing and Dinan.

If you significantly drop your suspension you should look into getting adjustable ones so you can get proper toe settings.

Just remember, you will need to buy the non-m adjustable toe arms and not the M3 adjustable toe arms.

I have rogue engineering ones on mine. M ones for me as I have an M3 rear subframe so I needed the shorter length arms.

Is it true that the Megan Racing toe arms have better rod ends that the Rogue Engineering, or Ground Control ?

Megan Racing typically don't make anything of their own but rather rebrand from other companies. In this case, these arms are said to have been made by Hardrace. They utilize a sealed ball joint with a nylon race that is essentially the same type of joint used in the M3 toe arms. All other aftermarket toe arms for our platform use spherical/heim joints that can wear out easily.
