On my e90 I have BC racing coilovers so I have camber plates, but supposedly the E36 M3 top hats give you a lot of negative camber. They're cheap too. I would go with proper camber plates if you can find some extra cash.


Take a lot at post number #348
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...881566&page=18


Also take a look at the link I posted below

Hopefully this will help you dial in the fitment that you want and that I hope to see!

Ok $200 isn't too bad. It looks like those will also lower the front of the car a bit because they replace the stock top hats which are thicker?

Torok TBH I'm not a huge fan of the front fitment... too much poke for me. But the rear looks good, and if you get your hood and bumper painted (and give your rear bumper a diffuser lol) then it'll be awesome.

If these are thinner, then it would raise the car a bit, if they're thicker than the OEM top hats, it will lower it some.


I would buy the camber plates if I was you

haha I know it still is far from finished The fitment will look good to me as soon as I can lower the front more. There is a diffuser on the rear bumper now, but all those other things aren't done yet

That doesn't make any sense to me. You have to be messing around with this haha? They make skinnier top hats so that people can lower their car more. (I'm pretty sure).


Edit: Looked it up and yea the cosmos ones are thinner therefore the car will be lower.
