Ye that s correct “inclinazione” is camber and “convergenza” is TOE

No sorry only e series cars as the f series uses different top mount setup which means simple plates like these won't fit :(

just for interest, how many mm/inch I have to move the top mount of the shock, if I want to get extra 0,5 or 1degrees of negative camber?

What are you thinking extending slots on strut towers ?

yes,extending the slots. I have M3LCA and Bilstein B12 (Eibach Pro kit spring), I will go to the wheel allingment, so we will see, but I have worries, it is needed a bit more camber yet.

Are you planning a lot of track use ? too much negative camber can be an issue on road and a rule of thumb i say -1.5 to -2 for road use, track use is different of course.

If doing lots of track what you need is some stage2 camber plates :D these along with M3 LCA will give around -2.5 to -3deg of camber depending on ride height etc.

You can slot the towers to get a bit more without adding plates though, its roughly 5mm for every 0.5deg of camber but they are other variables so not an exact number but gives you an idea.

Only fast road use. So 1,5-2degrees should be ok.We will do a allingment and will see, what I have know. My tips is around 1,3deg. Thx for your help.
