If anyone is interested I can throw up some before and after pics. Mine also has Dinan Camber Plates on there which raises the front 1/4 inch.

Here's my before after pics.

This is when I got the car back in June 2013 on stock suspension, stock alignment, and stock stagerred 215/40R18 + 245/35R18 RunFlat RE-050 tires.



This is the car now with -3.2* camber in the front and -1.8* in the rear. It has M3 front control arms, camber plates, swift spec-r springs, bilstein b8 dampers, and front+rear 255/35R18 Dunlop ZII tires (apologies for crappy cellular phone pics and dirty car):


Front tire and fender:


Rear tire and fender:

How do you find the ride comfort for daily driving? I found the Swifts to be a tad harsh on the bumps.

They are just right. Less vertical travel/swing over bumps. Better absorption of most bumps. Better road feal, and more NVH in a good way, if that's makes sense. I feal and hear pavement surface grip changes more easily, etc.

Going over moderate potholes will send a shockwave through the suspension and make me cringe over the possibility of bending a wheel or suspension arm, or mushrooming of my strut towers.

Btw my Canada geography is terrible but do you frequent Mosport? I'm considering going up in July.

Never been at Mosport. It's about a 6 hour drive for me, but Ive heard good things about that track. It is a very challenging with elevation and pavement changes.

I have access to three tracks within 1 hour of where I live (Autodrome St-Eustache, Mirabel ICAR, and Mt. Tremblant.
