They aren't, the M3's are wider and the fender flares sit out more. Hence, modifying the bumper brackets and pulling them in closer to the body on the sedans. I should have taken a pic yesterday to show you.

Pretty much if you mounted the brackets on the sedan in their original mounting points, the M3 rear sits about an inch out from the body on the sides and 1.25" short at where it meets the wheel well.
