E9X Fixed camber plate options other than Dinan?

Are there any fixed camber plate alternatives for the E9X other than the Dinan ones? Maybe something with a little more camber?

There wasn't a few years ago, haven't looked but wanted to say I've been happy with the Dinan plates, they don't make any noise, my GC did.

Yeah same with my GC. Its strange, its seems like some warm days my car rides like a lexus, then others its like its riding on a fixed suspension.

Mu GC did as well. I sold them and went with Dinan. I have extra brand new bushings for GC if someone needs them.

The M3 lower control arms will add camber, similar to how the Dinan plates will.

Yeah have those already, still not enough camber for what I want out of my car. Ended up forking out for the Dinan's and will swap out my GC adjustable plates. Hopefully I can sell the GC plates and recoup some of my wasted money.

In addition to the Dinan plates, I'm pretty sure you should also be able to increase the size of the shock tower slots as well.

No thanks. Would thoroughly recommend against anyone doing that to their car!

Why? I did it over a year ago and am very glad I did. With M3 Arms and a little dremel time I’m at -1.7 front camber. Here’s before and after. I added maybe 5mm to each slot it was painless and worked great...

I just wouldn't say it's a good idea for anyone to put (bigger) holes in a structural part of their car. Sure, it's probably strong enough that it won't cause an issue, but it's a last resort fix, if you ask me. Also here in the UK, anything that gives rust a starting point is a big no from me. Each to their own, but I'd go for fixed camber plates first.
