Sorry just realized that you have 335i... So for you is nothing to afraid of already few 335i cars going on that setup w/o M3 subframe so you are good to go. Just people please who is doing conversions do as much as possible pics.
I didn't get pics the first time around but can do it when I rebuild it. To be perfectly honest, all of it is bolt on except the driveshaft. I fitted the subframe and diff first, then measured the length required for the driveshaft and had it modified. Once the length was right, I bolted it up and it was done. My driveshaft is in my garage so I'll get some pics for those interested. I found that there were many shops here in the UK that specialised in modifying driveshafts including the all important balancing.
