Because our cars have the BMW E-3 front ends I found out that we cannot adjust the camber just the toe in. They can solve the problem by adding an inexpensive shim kit.They specialize in BMW alignment and race preparation. They are located in Dulles and the name is RRT on Overlook Drive ( off Old Ox Rd) . They are not cheap but I believe they are worth the extra money. Call for an appt.

Who knew? ...you can adjust front camber with shims. I learn something every day.
In BDR, you can't install caster-camber plates since the top of the strut is hidden below the fender.

And by using M version offset control arm bushings, you can change caster...
