I'm not sure what current alignment specs you are running but we setup e46 M3's with these specs for street driving:

-1.5 to -2.0 camber in the rear and zero the toe


Also, what tire pressures are you running in the rear?

Rear dampers = shocks. Just confirming that the driver's side rear tire is wearing at the same rate and pattern as the passenger side tire? Inside tire wear is normal with any kind of negative camber.

Copy that, I feel like your dampers may be tired/dead but again it's tough to say without driving the car or physically seeing the car. Wish I could help more but if I were you I would find a shop that can verify the condition of them, then remove the rears and take them to the shop for verification.

Had some similar issues

Man,

I know you are in charlotte, but the guys here in Raleigh, 'import motorwerks' just did mine and everything is GTG now. Was going through tires every 800-1000 miles; and for me it was the RTAB. Might be worth it to call them and see who they recommend in Charlotte to take a look at it. Also, the guys here are great at giving advice and diagnosis.

These guys do some seriously awesome stuff; now that my tires are good I'm going to let them tune it this summer.
