M3 control arms/ball joints on an E46

hello

sorry to post this, but I've looked around and can't seem to find the answer.

Will factory lower control arms (ball joints) bolt straight onto an E46 - 2000 323i?

PS- i have the ball joints on E46's!!!

front or rear? You mention ball joints, so I assume front. They are M3 specific ... will they fit? Probably, but not sure how it will affect your alignment and geometry.

thanks for the replies, I know XI's won't work at all as they are different control arms all together, but The M3's look like the E46.
