The front camber isn't adjustable anyway, so they'll have to leave that. You will have about 1/2 to 1 deg more neg camber than before, which is good.

You need a full 4 wheel alignment, if you like, (i did) ask them to set it to M3 coupe settings (on our cars you can only adjust the front toe and rear toe / camber anyway) M3 settings transformed the way mine handled - and its free!

Don't let them tell you they need to adjust the front camber or castor - they will have to knock out the strut top locating pins and you'll have trouble for ever more if they do that.

All non Non M3s have a stupid amounts of factory rear toe-in, this dulls steering and makes the car more 'stable' (i.e. it wants to go straight ahead)

Go for M3 settings above, which will set equal, but much smaller, toe-in all round.

Very informative thread!

I know it is more on E92 but I have a generic question.

BMW sports suspension is ZSP.

Now is M3 suspension and ZSP suspension the same?
or are they different?
