OP, I am in the same boat as you are.
I am looking for the answer to this question as well, but for E90.
My thread is located here, if somebody knows the answer.

For E90, I have seen posts claiming as high as -1.1 in the front, after removing alignment pins.
I tried to DIY the adjustment but could only get to -0.7, perhaps a pro can get more out of it.
I've also read you can get to -1.5 in the front with M3 wishbones and no alignment pin.

Thanks mate.

I wonder if there is photos showing the difference b/w OEM settings and -1.0 or -1.5 camber adjustments?

You need actual alignment measurement to confirm

This also depends on your ride height though. Stock e90/e92s start with around -0.5 in the front and -2.0 in the rear, not sure how much you can play with it but probably to -1.0 & -3.0.

i.e. With coilovers adjusting the height lower naturally creates more camber (without aftermarket camber plates).

my rear with my height is stuck at -3.15 which is past the usual assumption of -3 for max stock negative camber.

but as far as i know, fronts can go to about -1.5 camber and -3.3 camber in the rear without camber plates.
