E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Rear tire excessive inside wear

I have a 1987 325i Cabrio. I am constantly switching tires from rim to rim and also rotating the tires often. The reat tires wear on the inside due to excessive camber. Can this be fixed without affecting handling?

Ireland engineering makes a rear camber and toe kit... I bought it but haven't had the time to install it yet. You have to drop the rear axle carrier assembly to weld and slot for the camber ands toe bolts. Not the easiest thing to do.

Fixing the alignment will drastically IMPROVE your handling in everyday driving. If you have that much camber, you've got some seriously worn out bushings. Maybe broken springs too. That's completely abnormal if the suspension has never been modified.
