There are camber kits available for the E53 that can adjust the camber outwards, but performance will be slightly affected if you drive at higher speeds. If tire wear is your concern, consider having an alignment done and ask your technician to adjust the toe as close to 0 degrees as he can. They can also make minimum adjustments to the camber at the LCA bolts. If you have rear air suspension, you can have a BMW service center raise the rear 3mm-5mm to relieve any sag that may be causing the increase in camber. Regarding your issue of one wheel having more negative camber than the other, chances are the upper control link or lower control arm bushings need replacement.
