I'm assuming what you did was loose the little bolt underneath and turn the mount slightly sideways so the bolt would line up straight with the sway bar?
If that's what you've done, you shouldn't have any problems.
There's a guy that comes out to the local auto-xs that just put that same bar on his 325is. He said it's really nice. To make things better he said I could have his old sports package sway bar.

Ahhhh, gotcha. Yeah you'll be good for awhile. Judging from the way you say you drive (the whole blowing a new set of shocks in like a month i believe) that little rubber part will just wear out a little quicker but so long as it's not rattling around you're good.
I don't think having it slightly crooked will affect how it transfers the torsion from one wheel to the other at all.
Good luck with the new set up, my next purchase is one of those nifty G-timers, so I can see what my new sway bar does for me. It'd also be nice to see what G-s I was pulling around a track (Going for the brand new G-tech RR 300 bucks!)

They've got three axi. So you can mount the damn thing sideways and it will work. They've added 0-100-0 better screens.
The SS is 200, but the RR has more memory and can store 4 different cars. It also records "runs" so you can see your max Gs you were pulling at any given time. It also has dyno plots (which i wouldn't swear by) and rpms.
I'm thinking the RR is the way for me because then we can swap it between our 3 cars at the auto-x quickly for everyone to use. It also records the runs and it sounds like the SS doesn't.
A little OT never hurt anyone.
