I am about to put Eibach springs and Bilstein sport shocks on my 1990 535. The car has 16" Borbet's and is not track dedicated (at least for now :-) ). Should I install adjustable camber plates when the suspension is replaced? If so, are the Bav Auto good or are there others out there that are better?

I have the KMac plates on my 89 525iA as at the time I did the struts they were cheaper than the
standard BMW mounts and I figured it couldn't hurt to have the adjustment capability.
I have had no problems with noise etc, but they DID raise the front of the car noticeably.
Depends what you want to do with the car.
If you want lots of negative for track work, then go for the KMacs, if you don't and can get your
suspension aligned without them, then stay standard.
Cheers, hope this helps
