That explains why the Z3 bolts are specifically called camber bolts. They may not be not plain round bolts.
But I don't understand what may be two conflicting requirements of those bolts:
- They have to be tightened to a certain torque.
- But if they are eccentric, what if the required torque does not put their eccentricity at the right camber point?

I wonder if those camber bolts are round or eccentric?
