Just got alignment done on my E92 coupe

Check it out... I'm lowered on FK coilovers with less than a finger gap on front and back.

Anything I should be worried about in the long run?

Also, I hear some folks run M3 settings... does that mean more aggressive camber and toe settings?

Everything looks good to me. I am surprised they were able to get the chamber within spec being your car is lowered.

Just about the same numbers for me. Lowered on race springs with NO room for adjustment.

I'm curious regarding the M settings ........ anyone?

thats weird that their alignment machine measures in standard measurements, what would get annoying. id rather have toe in degrees

I had mine aligned by BMW to M3 specs after I installed M3 front control arms, I can scan the sheet if anyone interested.

Please post your M3 alignmnet specs. I had mine done to M3 specs (supposedly) after I added all of the M3 suspension upgrades available and now the rear tire noise is unbearable. I'll soon be taking it back in to have corrected. Of course, when I called my SA and asked what the specs on the alignment were, all he could tell me was 'we aligned it to M3 specs'.... I'm lowered on Bilstein PSS9's. Thanks

Here are my settings with the BMW performance suspension, springs and the M3 control arms front and back. Just use the 335 settings. I can get even more camber up front if I remove the pins, but the car handles great with these settings. I can throttle steer the car now and steering responses are a hell of a lot better than stock. I had my tech set toe to slightly out but still within spec.

too funny my dealer has to do the same thing. For an oil change they need to bust out a floor jack to get the side post lift to fit under the car. When I roll it in the service guys hate it.
