Nope. rear mounted turbos have specially sized housings to avoid just that problem. They also have the advantage of being naturally cooled which, in most cases, eliminates the need for intercoolers. They replace you rear silencers too so you save a bit of weight there too. All good one it's been designed for the specific car with all required tuning work done. Not sure if there's a big enough market for M3's though?
