I wouldn't think that camber is adjustable on stock suspension. M3 might be radically different from everything else on the road, though

did you lower the car?

if the car is really lowered, -3 is possible on stock arms.

At the outboard end of your lower wishbone/rear camber arm, there is an eccentric bolt/bushing where you can adjust your camber. Dunno how much you got to play with on the stock setup...
If you can't get it right with the stock wishbones, go for something like this;

-3 is way off spec. BMW specs camber at -1 front and -1.75 rear. There's only about 0.5 degree of play with a stock suspension. You definitely have bent control arms.

gtr style bumper..thought about getting one but the groove allows for dirt and stuff to go out that way if it's really a functional one. Living in WA ur just askin to wash your rear all the time
