Prolly too late.

You told them right, but they just didnt follow your instructions. Your toe in the rear was BETTER BEFORE they changed it!

They gave you more toe in the rear, more toe on the right front.

That drives me nuts- especially when you say DO THIS.

The specs appear to be 0.0 to 0.10 for the front

0.02 to 0.08 for the rear.

Note their spec is 0.05 target, wwith a 'plus-minus' of 0.05 on the front; 0.03 on the rear.
OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"
