I pulled up photos on ECS and was surprised how different they are though both the 135i and M coupe use the same collar nut, clip, and bearing but use a different output flange. The suspension pick-up point look to be in very different positions. Check out the lengths of the bosses holding the trailing arm bushing and toe arm. Also note the relative position of the sway bar mount to the toe arm.

Maybe the M knuckle with 135i 33416771082 or 330i/335i 33416760058 drive flanges and 33207580945/46 or 33207568730/31 axles depending on the pumpkin, but it's hard to tell from the photos if the M knuckles poke out more (or less) and would require a longer (or shorter) drive axles.
