Mein Auto: 95 M3 Coupe
1995 M3 Alignment

I just got a call from the garage that was doing my alignment.

I was told that I will need to get camber kits for the front, and will need to get adjustable control arms for the rear. Wouldn't my car already have at least the rear control arms?

Does this sound right? There were mods when I bought the car last year, but I didnt think that there was any aftermarket springs on the car.

Any help is appreciated.

Fronts are not adjustable but you can add washers to the strut mounting points to the knuckles to add some negative camber.
Rears are somewhat adjustable with stock arms but if they are bent then there is no way of fixing it.

Just got my results back: The toe is good for the front and back, however the camber is off somewhat. Does anyone know whether this is really going to effect the life of the tires significantly? Any issues with just leaving it as is? Apparently the care was lowered previously...I didnt notice (not a large drop).

LF: -0.46 (range is -1.50 to -2.50)
RF: -0.90 (range is -1.50 to -2.50)
LR: -1.01 (range is -2.52 to -2.85)
RR: -1.55 (range is -2.52 to -2.85)
