Question regarding camber

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi, just need your opinion on this if I should be concerned: 2015 435 GC xdrive lowered on ACS lowering spring recently, did an alignment but the rear left camber is still negative 1.8 comparing to manufacturer's suggested 1.38 (shop told me they were not able to adjust to 1.38, and most they can do was 1.8. All other 3 cambers were adjusted to suggested data. My question is: is this a big deal or it is fine and won't affect too much. I guess I need to buy an aftermarket camber kits if needed. Thanks in advance guys!

Excessive camber angle can lead to increased tire wear and impaired handling.
And different camber can cause car to not run straight anymore. If you're driving on a flat street and keep your hands off the steering wheel, your car should still go straight. With unpaired camber car could pull to one side.

I don't know if this difference goes as "tolerance" or if you should correct it. My feeling definitely says, both should be the same value.
