Actually after looking at some Google images of M3 subframe assemblies I would bet $1 that you will be cutting body sheet metal above the diff to make room for the raise. And that is definitely at least some of the welding required, if not all of it.

I believe you need to remove the trunk floor storage where the tire repair kit is in order to use the diff lift kit for the E92.

Based on the pics, I don't see how you can cut the rear subframe to shift the rear diff mount point higher without compromising the stiffness of the subframe itself.

Honestly still not impressed with their items. I wanted real bad to like it. But the recent info directed me away from their stuff.

Someone needs to just buy it and do a detailed photoshoot, analysis, measurements, etc. Way too much speculation.
