: I saw Doug at the BMW CCA GGC Oakland autox a few weeks ago.

: Unless he got the camber plates within the past few weeks he I would be willing to say that he does not have aftermarket camber plates, but has Camber Bolts instead. He was kind of bummed that he didnt even swap the left and right stock plates to get that extra .5 degrees of neg. camber when the suspension install was done.

You're probably right. We didn't talk in much detail about exactly what was done, and it's probable that I misunderstood. The upper mount plates certainly were not adjustable, but then Dinan likes to used fixed plates until you get fairly gonzo.

: I would like to actually with you Zander about what you mean, since I don't really get it over the board. (I dont like being worried about making changes to my car, I hate it when people disagree about mods. Since I have no idea and no experience all i can do is take others advice! :)

I understand what you mean completely. Probably the best bet would be to ride with Doug through a fast sweeper so you can feel what I'm talking about. I've never been able to explain it well without demonstrating it.
