M3 sway bars fit on a 330Ci?

First of all, will the stock M3 sway bars fit on a 2001 330Ci sport? The reason i ask is that for the auto-X class i wanna be in im 2 points over the requirement, and each sway bar is worth 2 points. So if i could fit either a front or rear(probably preferably rear) sway bar from an M3 its still considered as OEM(or atleast how i think. Would it be considered OEM?).
So would this work?
BTW- i have no mods yet.

Oh yea, what are the measurements of each bar?

Looked into this a while back.
The 21.5 mm M3 rear sway bar rubber bushing and mounting bracket are bigger and the bracket is bolted to the frame with 2 bolts vs 330Ci 1 bolt and a tab/slot arrangement.

Love my PSS9, stock front bar and H&R 21 mm rear bar.
Buy the way, the stock SP Conti tires work MUCH better when the suspension is proper. Stock is way tooo soft.

I would try to remove something else...you do not want to have an screwy swaybar setup it will kill your times. I also doubt that it would still be considered OE because it was not intended for your car.
