The BMW specification for the Z3coupe is between 2.5-3.5 degrees of negative camber in the rearend; no adjustment. This is more than most club racers use. If your rearend is out of specifications, then you have to change out suspension parts.
The front is similar, but does have toe adjustment.
All four of my tires are wearing on the inside edges and is within BMW specifications. I have Yokohama AVS Sport tires and they say to add 3 psi per tire, rather than lower the pressures.
With these specs, any car could advertise, " and live for the corner."
