I have tried with no luck to find the standard M5 Geometry settings and what other people are running. My car is booked in for a full gemoetry set up next Friday at Power Engineering. BMW took my car and after 5 hours said they couldn't do anything because it wasn't standard.........

They already knew this GGrrrrrr.......grrrrrrr

Guidance on Caster, camber, toe F&R would be appreciated and what is and isn't adjustable

Tks

Adrian - you may want to give Biltons of Perivale a call with any specific questions. They are very good for tyre fitting, laser alignment etc. and do lots of work for HROwen sports cars (Lambo dealer). Talk to Slim on (020) 8566 9766.

Hope this helps :byebye:
