The BMW spec (by memory) is 0.00 to 0.08 each side. So asking for 0.02 on each IS still IN spec. But dealerships can be lazy, if they toss it on the rack and the numbers are 'green' (ie in the spec) they USUALLY will not change them. Just have them write your wishes IN THE REPAIR ORDER. Just make it clear you have specific needs in advance and they should accomodate,

On the other numbers, they should just be in spec. I like Camber in the middle of the range AND even from side to side.


Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
