Control arms (wishbones and guide rods), not the camber arm ("roll over strut"...?)

Hi Does anyone know if the M3 rear lower control arm is a direct fit to the 135i.

Yes, 100%. Edit: doh! Yeah, the shock will need to be changed.

Yes it fits, but you need to change to an M3 rear shock. The lower mounting points for the shock are different.

The light sensor bracket doesn’t fit I think. I believe you need to make your own for the m3 rear lower camber arm.
