M3 anti sway bars on a 330 estate.?

Can anybody help / tell me if its possible to fit a set of front and rear anti sway bars from a M3 coupe onto a 330i sport touring/estate.?
Ive looked on realoem and they look the same shape, although i realise they are different thicknesses.
M3,s are ,,
front, 26mm
rear,21.5mm

330sport estate,,,
front 24mm
rear, 19mm.

Has anybody done this and what was the outcome,
Thanks.

Unless the non-M3 cars in Europe got the M3 differential/carrier (which I don't think they did), the rear bar will NOT fit your car. "M Sport" and "M3" are two entirely different animals.
