Excessive camber factory suspension

Hey guys, recently got my car aligned and noticed the front camber was -1.1 on both sides up front. Does this seem excessive for a stock 328xi? What would cause this, I'm thinking maybe worn upper strut mounts? Thanks

I'm thinking someone put M3 control arms on and pulled the alignment pins.

I'd even argue this (-1.1) is desireable vs OE under steer city - granted its even and toe checks out, etc.
