    Hi all. I know my 2000 528i is designed for negative camber front and rear. When I recently replaced the struts on both ends, and the lower control arms on the front end, I noticed the camber in the front is now much less, almost unrecognizable. Also the rear camber looks pretty extreme. Would...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Compared to a 2016 F34 328ix I just turned in (had DHP, which included VSS), my new 2019 F34 330ix with Adaptive M Suspension (no VSS) has a VERY numb steering feel - very little road feedback. I find this is the case regardless of driving mode. Both cars were/are running OEM all-weather...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I took the Z3 in today for a balance and rotate. The first one since I got the vehicle. They said the shocks, struts, and springs were ok. On the camber side toward the car they said it was wavey. The suspension is ok. The tires always inflated correctly. They were in balance. What could...

    New to Z3 so sorry if dumb question. I am not that fat (240 lb). When I get in the Z3 to tires at the top point inward. Like this but not as extreme. /T/|Car|\T\ Is this normal or was something modified so the car does this?
  5. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Just had an alignment today, all in specs, only the steering wheel was not straight. When I got home and looked on the paper says -1.4 degrees rear camber on both wheels and +0.27 front camber. Shouldn't it be negative also for the front wheels? Does this impact the steering?

  8. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    hi everyone. i bought a 2005 m3 about a month ago and i LOVE it. problem is, the person who had it before me lowered it and is now sitting with -2.5º of camber in the rear. needless to say, this is killing my tires and i cannot afford to buy tires every month. im attaching a picture of what i...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey folks, like many threads here, I can also testify that excessive inside rear tyre wear is common on BMWs, and I thought just on the tourers at first (having owned a 528 before and now a 320i touring), but reading these threads it seems saloons suffer too. Anyway, just having some MoT...

    So today I asked my brother if he'd like to drive my car just about an 1/8 of a mile on the street that leads down to my house. He's older than me, but is from the Philippines and has never driven a car before coming to the US. Anyways, i've had him drive it before and I thought it would be no...

    The whole point of alignment weights is to get the ride height correct, but, it's hard to weight a bimmer since about 500 pounds are needed to position the ride height correctly. Given that the ride height is crucial, the point of THIS thread is to have pictures of the weights actually used for...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi. I have a 1998 528i with an unusual issue. The car has started to react to wet roads as if the roads were icy. When the road has rain on it the car gets sloppy, amost like when the road has a coating of snow on it. The traction light comes on with the slightest depression of the accelerator...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi i drive a 325is. Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs I've had an alignment done and was told i need a camber kit in the front and a toe kit for the rear. Im having a hard time deciding on an adjustable camber kit or a fixed camber plate and on which company/site to order from. any...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Today I called up three local BMW dealerships to ascertain what they use for weight and some service managers replied they use "sand bags". - > E39 (1997 - 2003) > The REAL Reason For Using Weights During Alignment (No, It's Not What You Think.) I find that hard to believe, if for no...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    This is a followup thread to one of a couple years ago: - Curious what you think of my excessive tire wear (is it due to camber or toe-in?) What can I have them do at the alignment shop to reduce my drastic E39 inside tire wear? I haven't been on in a while due to personal issues - but, I...
  17. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, Does any one have the original Camber and Toe numbers for a 2001 BMW Z3 3.0 Roadster? I long time ago when I bought the car I got a new set of tires and the guy in the shop just set up everything straight, so I got a weird tire wear. The tires were crap anyway (Maxxis), I just bought...

  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Do E90's have weak front suspensions? I have 2011 328i non-sport with 17k. Recently noticed wandering on wavy hwy pavements. Dealer re-aligned, but states front left camber can not be put into spec. Claims likely bent control arm or upper shock tower mount damage. Likely from pothole...
