Dinan Camber Plate and Ride Height

If I was to install Dinan camber plates on a 128 with stock sport suspension, looks like the ride height would increase by 1/4 inch in the front.

Is that noticeable in terms of looks or handling, balance?

I like the ride and look of my car stock, just want more neg camber but not more noise.

About 1/8" is all. The plates aren't that thick. It's not really noticeable. The additional caster is nice too. Other option, if you don't have them already, is the M3 lower control arm for additional camber.

1/8" , and additional caster? Why so much misinformation on these threads? These are camber plates not caster plates, and it's clearly stacking 1/4".

Guess you have to take what you read on here with a grain of salt.

I had them on my 135i, and I didn't notice the extra ride height, and the extra camber certainly helped the handling. I think they are a great mod if you want to keep the stock upper mount.
