K Mac has been around in Australia for a very long time. Their parts are always of a very high quality. If they say these are for the F30 then I would certainly order them. K Mac also don't apply a BMW tax to their parts from my dealings in the past on older BMW's. I am after camber plates and didn't think of them. I will give them a call tomorrow morning to double check

A-Z your facebook page does not specify that you have camber plates for the F30. Do you?

I have reason to believe we will have one or two camber plate options by the end of July.

I took my F30 to the track with KW V3s. The car has -0.7 camber because of lowering. Unfortunately, you can see the ride height is far too low (looks great on the street ) causing positive camber gain. This is inherit in MacPherson strut suspension if you go beyond optimum suspension travel/geometry. I don't really car since this is my street car but y'all are gonna be tracking your F30s and the camber and proper ride height will help the cars a ton.

Yeah - I'm a little disappointed. I go back on the phone today with one of the reputable camber plate manufacturers. I was told by they need another two weeks for their street camber plates. Their race once have been out for a while.

I just contacted Vorshlag, and spoke with Jason... sounds like camber plates for the F30 are coming soon

Here's the info that I got from Jason:
A workable design has been achieved, plastic prototypes are in development, and are on target for completion in September. Assuming no surprises with the plastic prototypes, the metal prototypes are targeted for completion in October. If all goes well with the metal prototypes, he plans to have production units for sale by the end of the year. (He didn't anticipate any delays with needing to tweak prototypes, but he said if there are any, it shouldn't delay things by much.)

I also sent him a link with pics of the OEM camber bearing and asked for his thoughts... he said it looked like what he would call a replacement "hub" with a different angle, and that it would be compatible with his camber plates.

While talking, he mentioned that the F30 has enough caster that he doesn't foresee needing to dial-in more... In fact, overall he really likes the F30 suspension design (more so than the E90), and predicted that the typical process of track guys swapping-in M3 suspension components to improve handling may not really be necessary with the F30.

Yeah, the camber correction swivel bearing can only help matters, as it adjusts the lower end of the suspension outward, it'll increase the available negative camber that pulling the top of the strut inward can achieve.

It has finally happened! A quality manufacturer, TC Kline Racing, has released camber plates for the F30--at least when you buy their coilovers: http://www.tcklineracing.com/index.c...y&Category=796 This is one of the manufacturers I have been speaking with over the past few months who have promised to have camber plates out soon.

I started a thread in the Suspension section of this forum to discuss the release of their coilover and camber plate package here: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=890405

These coilovers are, bar none, the best dual purpose coilover option out there now for the F30. (Please note I have no affiliation with TC Kline. I am just really excited that a quality manufacturer has finally released a coilover option for the F30 with linear springs and camber plates.) I'd be very curious to find out whether you can buy the camber plates separately. If this were the beginning of the summer / track season for me rather than the end, I would probably jump on these. However, being the end of the summer, I may just wait for a few other options.

CAMBER PLATES!!!!

This is great news. I used the DA version on my E92 335 for 4 years and JMK007 is correct, they are a great dual duty option and the best currently available. You would have to spend a lot more to better it.

Notice how they created a mount on the rear strut so you can access the rear adjusters. Very cool.

Of course, this opinion has a lot to do with how you drive your car and what you want to feel.

To answer my own questions, you can purchase the camber plates separately at, I believe, $549. According to TC, they will allow camber, in 1/4 degree increments, up to 4 degrees.

We were testing our 'prototype' Double Adjustable Coilover suspension with these camber plates at Oktoberfest last year at Mid Ohio.

This year we were testing the 'production' Double Adjustable Coilovers with camber plates at Oktoberfest at Laguna Seca, and the whole kit feels fantastic!!

Again, we have been testing for over a year now with these pieces and we are totally satisfied!!

As stated by others, we only produce the best parts possible, and feel totally confident in their performance.

Thank you.
