: 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.

I'm certainly glad someone asked this question.I've noticed the squat look also but was afraid that the answer would be terrible!I was only brave enough to ask my girlfriend who is so tired of hearing: does she seem faster today or, did you hear that? well at least her answers never cost me.Thanks guys.
