Looking for reviews on negative camber control arms & low compliance rear control arms that Dinan released recently for F10s. Thanks.

Yes...eats up the inside. Had a E55 like that but held the road well.

Just picked up the car not too long ago after installing the new Dinan Negative Camber & Low Compliance Rear Control Arms. It has been raining all day here in Chicago, so I can't comment too much on the negative camber except that turns at slightly elevated speeds now feel more accurate. However, I can definitely feel the effects of the rear control arm. The rear is more composed, and sport mode with Dinan springs & shockware now feels less jarring while retaining the original stiff handling. The handling of my car has been transformed for the better. If you had to do one, I would definitely recommend the rear control arms.

I don't understand why they don't make a low compliance front control arm, a chamber kit is just too much to me.

Any chance you could post some pics of the stance?

Since the negative camber is only set at 0.5 degrees, it is hard to notice. I tried my best with the picture.
