M3 or non-M end links for M3 sway bar retrofit?

I installed an M3 front sway bar (26mm) into my 2001 330Ci based on forum posts saying it is a direct swap. No, the M3 bar ends are a little longer (extend further towards the rear of the car) which puts the end link ball joint in a very awkward position. To try to remedy this, I will install adjustable end links which can twist/rotate (looking at Godspeed end links). But which size link is correct for my lowered car? Stock, E46 M3, or E36 M3?

EDIT: E46 M3 and non-M are exactly the same. Stock length seems to be the correct size, but I used the Godspeed adjustable links so I could rotate the balljoints to the correct orientations.
