as far as I wanna go, for tire wear sake. Its pretty conservative at the moment, fronts natural camber, no plates. Rears on control arms and def not maxed out. Still need a proper alignment so I can get the specs

edit: not too cambered out at all



still do kinda of want to pull the rear fenders a bit, 10mm spacers... buuuuut not too sure, its fine as is.

Besides, there's really not a whole lot of news to be had with the E46, apart from the alarming decline of fastidious owners and ghastly mods.

That arqray-like add-on is actually pretty sweet. I think I could fab up something like that.
