That camber doesn't look good, might have bent few things.
Was it raining yesterday? I don't remember.

Agreed, looks like you have positive camber on the back left. That be bad. Get an alignment.

if you are still on runflats, this should serve as a reminder of how long they take to actually warm up when it rains.

and in my experience, they stay annoyingly greasy.

If a couple of control arms, labor and an alignment is all that this experience costs you, the car gods have given you a reprieve. Use it wisely, and spend some of the money saved on repairs and hospital bills on a track day with car-control as part of the curriculum. BMWCCA and other clubs do it all the time.

Chin up, I'm happy for you and your car.
