does my 320D M sport sit correctly???

I think the rear end looks a little low in honesty but I haven't really seen other 320D m sports to compare it to.

I want to fit my genuine CSL wheels to the car but currently the rear arches rub on the tyre (the wheels sit completely flush with the arch and even backing off my drive way causes them to rub currently)

Are these standard springs on the rear, how can I get the CSLs to fit (picture is with a 255/35/19 tyre and I WILL be replacing those with 255/30/19 tyres for the E92, so I will get a bit more clearance from that but I don't think that alone is enough or will it?.

when the springs have settled after being jacked up, the car literally has a coupe millimeter in clearance.

Maybe a bit more camber would solve the clearance issue but equally I would like my tyres to last instead of being worn away on the inner edge only

Yes, RHD lean on the left, and LHD lean on the right. When you go with larger wheels it just becomes more noticeable. Camber of -2.0 with toe 0 will help you with the rub and excess tire wear as well. You can also use 5mm spring pad from e30 to remedy the issue. BTW it seems like you need rear shocks!

Perhaps lower shock mount too. it looks act degraded in the photo, but can't be certain. Great idea and the 5MM SPRING PAD.

That could be too especially if shock is seizing up but in most cases spring determine the ride height.
