Igor's mod merely allows you to relocate the mounting holes
to get back to factory camber settings, which is precisely not
what you want for track use. The Euro-Car camber plates allow
for both, just at a much higher cost. For street use, the redrilling
of the factory would be the way to go. If one wanted to use the
car for street and track, then the camber plates I'm talking about
is the way to go. There is enough room to go to -2.0 w/ the plates.

Then again, E36s can go to -3.0 with a very similar suspension, although
the exact design differs.

Yes, that's what I was refering to. If it won't go negative far enough,
there is only so much room in the top of the strut tower.  You may have
to add to the lower control arm or split the sub frame.  Have fun!
