I used Lemforder rear sway bar links. The Lemforders not only have the correct and latest Boge bushings pre-pressed in them, but they are the OEM BMW links. Just that the "BMW" name is spot-face-milled off. I touched up the spot faced area with Rustoleum red paint to keep corrosion out.
One trick I do use is to mark all the parts. Even with good guys like European. This way when I get the car back I can look at the parts and be sure they used the new ones I provided. I paint red witness marks on them as shown.
