I did the install myself and a BMW Master Tech aligned it to the dinan spec except for the front toe which was set to 0. I don't have EDC.

The dinan stII is a little better than OEM. Definitely stiffer but it doesn't make sense from a cost perspective for the track. If I'm going to spend $1450 on the Stage I and plates...I'm halfway to a pretty good set of coilovers.

While the back end did behave a little better...not sure if I can attribute that to the rear link or the stiffer springs. For a $2k+ setup, I'd expect a little more.

For the street, I think the Dinan Stage 2 is a good setup. The camber plates are a total waste of money IMO. It's ok for track and ok for the street but not optimal in either case. Why bother?
