Identifying Genuine E46 M3 Suspension

Guys,

I have a 330ci and want to do an upgrade to M3 suspension.

I have bought some M3 suspension (front / rear shocks / springs / top mounts / sway bars) from ebay which I am due to pick up tomorrow.

My question is how do I identify that they are off an M3 ?

Cheers

the Rear trailing arms will have big M// on them. also the brakes will have the same type of M// as for the other suspension parts springs struts ext. there is no simple way to tell that i kno of, im not sure i didnt notice any big M stamped on them

as stated already, just get p/n if your worried about it and double check them
