Adjustable rear camber

Hi all,
I am looking at fitting Eibach pro kit springs to my 320 sedan. I have been told that they give about a 30mm drop from standard, which I believe is about M3 height.
Ok, so the question is, do I need to fit adjustable rear camber arms or would this be an overkill?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Only if the stock adjusters don't allow enough adjustment to get back to around -1.5 degrees after the lowering springs are installed. If you go for a performance alignment then you might need the camber arms if you can't get to -2.0 degrees or more in the rear.
If you can get to -1.5 degrees, regardless I'd look at spending some money on camber adjustment in the front as you'll get more handling improvement from that than additional camber adjustment in the rear.

If you're only going to be sitting at about M3 height, you won't need any adjustable camber arms or plates.
