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.

Ah right okay I'm just reading it wrong then. I thought the nsf being -2.16 and the osf being -1.53 was a massive difference. Thanks for letting me know 馃挭

It feels great round low speed corners, it turns in and just grips but high speed bends and even in a straight line the car feels very floaty, it weaves about a fair bit and to be honest it's not nice at all.

Braking from high speed the car is all over the place, it's scares me sometimes not gonna lie haha. I've come from a very well setup mk3 mx5 that was just unreal on the bends and brakes, not many cars would keep up with that at the few track days I did.

Maybe my problem with the m135i is that im comparing it to much to the mx5 handling wise.
