Question about a kw v1 install

Hey what's going on just a quick question for anyone who has installed these on there car. I have a 01 330i and I'm about to install the v1s on my car. my question is I got the set used and it did not come with the end links. From what I read the end links needed are shorter than the stock ones and that the e36 m3 ones work? Does anyone know for a fact which end links will work best for the v1s. thanks for looking

Do you own a welder or have access to one ?

If you had a welder you could cut your current OE links right in half & weld them back together with one overlapping the other, this way you could lose the 2" or 3" inches you need to. So instead of spending that money on end links, buy a cheap welder that you'll have for projects like this for the rest of your life.

Thanks I really appreciate it. Really good idea. I just don't know if I would trust myself to weld them good enough haha you wouldn't know the exact size I would need them to be would you?
