It's perfectly normal, the rear camber is supposed to be like that. That positioning of the rear wheels is one of the things that gives and E28 remarkable handling while retaining a compliant ride.

There's even a little bit of the rear-wheel-steer similar to Audi's "Weissach axle" twist-beam... lean the car in a turn and the rear wheels' toe action causes the rear to assist in rotating the car.

You want to see a really crazy example of rear-wheel camber? Look at a 2nd-gen RX-7 ('86-'93), it looks like someone just leaned a wheel against the car and didn't tighten to lugs.
