Are rear control arms direct fit?

I have the opportunity to buy an M3 set for relatively cheap, so I was wondering if it's worth just buying the remaining parts and installing it as an "upgrade".

Was curious which control arms WON'T FIT my 128i 2008 - is it all accept for the Camber Link Arm? Lower purple in the image below.



Are the others direct bolt and then alignment?

Typical Upgrade kits only include the Wishbone and Guide Rods (as well as the ABS sensor bracket) https://www.ecstuning.com/b-trw-part...3322283547kt4/.

I don't think all of the rest of them are direct bolt on, but might want to check out fe1rx thread to refresh on that.

Ya, I read his thread, but it was unclear, unless I can't read right.

Would you know the factory part number for these two parts?
