    Got a chance to get under the car today and in quick glance I noticed that we have no camber adjustment provisions (that I could see without removing any parts) for either the front or the rear. Only TOE-IN and TOW-OUT.

    might be good to know in case you decide to lower your 3 (by means of aftermarket springs, or cutting coils, etc.

    . I did not see any camber adjustment points or bolts in neither the top control arms, or spindles, or lower control arms. While this can be typical to see in the rears of vehicles, I’m surprised that the fronts don’t have camber adjustments (by way of eccentric bolt, or shims). Maybe I overlooked something but perhaps others can confirm.

    But I do have Alcantara headliner

    Your camber readings aren't too bad. Toe is usually the culprit for heavier inside wear.

    I’ll investigate some more later next week when I drop the 3 off at Eibach for measurements and prototyping!

    Minus 2.1 degrees negative camber on your rear drive wheels is asking for inside tire wear. No question.

    My MB C-230 Kompressor alignment required a kit installed to allow for adjustment, it is non-adjustable out of the factory.
