Well alignment was done today. Front camber is about 1 degree left and right.
Rear is around 3 degrees, but it didn't help to remove the rubbing, maybe it reduced it, but still bigger bumps and faster cornering rubs. Any ideas?

Did you roll your fenders? I rolled my front fenders slightly on the E91 and that helped a lot.

Do you get a lot of snow where you live? We don't get that much so I don't raise my car during winter. But a lot of people stare when I'm plowing snow

Yes the fenders are rolled, but maybe it wasn't rolled enough. Do you happen to remember what your rear camber was?

Sometimes we have a lot of snow like over 1 meter, but i would say 0.5-1m is pretty normal. I also have to lift it up anyway since inspection is at winter. And i want to use my winter wheel setup with normal camber, so it doesn't look so sunken. Especially now that the fenders are rolled.

You will probably need to go more stretched tires, or try another brand tires. Rounder shoulder tires like Toyo, Hankook and Nitto are better choices over square shoulder tires like Yokohama and Michelin IMO.

I am not sure if you can go truly -3 degree cambers in the rear cause I went full stock camber and I am at -2.6, and that's about what other people can get with OEM camber arms. If you want more camber, upgrade your camber AND tow arms. Megan racing, for one, has those parts.

Thanks for the advice.

I also have full stock camber and according to alignment my rear left is -3.18 rear right is -2.57. Before alignment it was little bit less, but adding more camber really didn't help in this case.

First thing we do is little bit more fender rolling, then we will see how it works. I might raise the rear little bit too.

Adding more camber or not depends on what kind of look you are going for. If you just want to achieve nice flush (a little poking) look, then yes more aggressive rolling (plus maybe a little cutting) will be the first thing you do. But if you want the hella flush look, then more camber is the way to go.

I honestly won't try to raise the car up man, it looks good as is. Go for the fender roll and narrower tires man, forget raising up your car. Like a lotta people say, "if you ain't rubbing, it ain't right"

I knew you are going to say that . It's like forbidden to raise coilovers.
More fender modifications is going to be my solution.

I guess i could post these two pictures of on going process by friend of mine at bodyshop.




This was planned like almost a year ago, but because many different reasons it has taken my friend at bodyshop this long to be in this point. Same reasons why my m-sport rear bumper is still in work in progress. And i have few other things in my mind already.

Thanks. I'm really happy how it looks eventhough it's unfinished. Can't wait to get it on the car, when it's ready. I don't really like my current CSL spoiler, because it doesn't fit so well.
