for the 318 im pretty sure most of the suspension stuff will work, but isnt a great idea due to the suspension on the m3 being set up for the weight of a i6 and the 318 has the 4 banger. But things like seats etc would be a nice switch

Simply put, everything will fit. I have M3 parts galour on my 318.

When you swap suspension parts, just make sure you have all the parts from the M3. The sway bars are mounted to the struts instead of the control arms, the front struts require the M3 strut hats, everything else will pretty much just bolt on.

There's no problem using M3 suspension. The front end will just be slightly higher do to the lighter weight. You will also experience an increase in understeer since the front end has been lightened and obviously you won't have the torque of the M3 to give it that bit of oversteer.

m3 flywheel.. ohh, i wouldnt get my hopes up, the 318 flywheel might be different because tis a whole different engine.. it might work though

for exterior, you could do:
bumpers
fenders
rims
interior...

those seats and shift nob and pedals.. are reallly cool
