It doesn't matter. Juist stick with 335.
The camber is not adjustible anyway unless you take out the top pin.
So, you can think of it as once you do the wishbone and tension rod install, you will already have M3 settings.

I have installed my M3 rear sway bar in my E92 335i but I have some problems.
The rear sway bar touched the body work on the upper left. This means every time when the car goes into corner or over bumps it makes bad noise. Its really bad.

Can anyone please sent me some finished pictures of their rear sway bar on the coupe so I can see where the problem is? Thanks

Are you sure it isn't upside down?

Thanks for the pic. My dealer has really installed the sway bar upside down! Its really unbelievable. I had no idea that he lack the imagination. I wonder why I got all these strange noises. Luckily everything is installed and I am happy

There are also disclaimers for the listing of the various parts of the kit as well. Have there been any specific problems caused by installing M3 suspension (in full or part) on E9X's?

I don't think so, just a disclaimer as people will do stupid things like put the parts in and not do an alignment, or put something in the wrong way.

I have just swapped the front M3 e93 sway bar (largest) together with the upper M3 tower brace... what a change in turn-in feeling, I highly recommend this upgrade... not to mention the flatter cornering...

Do you mean you just installed the front M3 E93 sway and the M3 tower brace?

If so, AGREED!

That's what I did (in addition to the M3 upper/lower control arms) and handling vs the E90 sport package is like "night and day."
