Sounds to me like something in the range of -1.5 to -2.0 could fit that bill.
And it looks likes folks on this thread are getting around this range w/out camber plates.
You're not going to get any more than -1.4 out of the front stock suspension and anything less than -2.0 you'll be chewing up the outside of any tire. Maybe you should look for another e36 because modding any M after that chassis isn't cheap.
