    It's implied it will, but it's not a swap you will likely find anyone doing that way arounf so unlikely to get an answer.

    I'm guessing you need a car back on the road quick?

    The 328 one will physically fit onto the M3 engine, but it'll strangle it and might not match up to the rest of the exhaust system.

    The manifolds will bolt on but the front pipe wont bolt to the manifold. The M3 manifolds are far longer. To get an M3 manifold to fit a 328i you need the M3 centre pipes and cats. Its NOT a direct fit to either just because it bolts to the head it will be more hassle and expense than just fitting the proper M3 manifold.
