Front camber problem

Hi, could anyone tell me which side is the correct amount of camber for the front of my m135i after fitting m4 lca and bilstein b12?

The camber was out on one side when I first took the car for an alignment when it was stock, I assumed the osf strut or hub was bent because 2 days after buying the car the original strut went through the hub when I was having a blast down some lanes.

The pinch bolt wasn't tightened due to whoever worked on the car before I bought it, so the dealer I got the car from agreed to pay for the repairs.

Since then I've replaced everything on the front with brand new lemforder parts.

The only thing I noticed when replacing parts was that the outer tie rod on the osf was slightly bent but everything else looked fine.

New top mounts
Bilstein b12 kit
Inner tie rods + ends
M4 lca + tension struts
2 front hub carriers off another m135i + wheel bearings
Drop links
Brembo discs and pads
New ps4 tyres

Everything looks fine but clearly something isnt right.

Looks ok just a few seconds out,maybe when you sit in it will be better also
As is comparing my 118d to my s2000 with Ohlins :lol2:
I think because shorter bump stops used,on oem bumpstops they are used as a secondary to help low spring rates.Yes crashy but as designed on BMW using very short dampers at My s2000 has 10k front and rear :rolleyes: bumpstops do not engage like BMWs .
Was looking at coilovers tbh but as car is a work horse =£s and meister are a 12 week wait atm.(n)
Cant get much closer than that !! :cool:
