Yes, this wall does make a difference in handling. I noticed a huge difference when a friend cut the wall out of his M3. The car oversteered like crazy. Do what you can to reinforce the rear. A shock tower brace isn't going to cut it, though. You'll need either custom welded tubing or sheetmetal replacement. The walls are all the same for E30's, so go to a junkyard with a saws-all and cut one out. BRING EARPLUGS!! Then get a bodyshop to weld it back in. Just make sure you cut it out a little bigger than the hole in your car.
