You'll wanna kick yourself if you don't get these in before your next track day so do it!

In the rear, I run a little toe in on my E46. I have my E90 set to OEM specs in the rear.

In the front, I usually run a touch of toe out. Yes, it heats up the tires more and will make the front end feel darty on the street over bumps and uneven surfaces. But, the car turns in much more immediately. I like it on the two tracks that have a couple of tight, slow turns. You need to be smooth. I run zero toe on really fast tracks. Now, I just run zero toe because alignments were getting expensive.

I ran -3 camber in the front on square OEM 18" rears with Dunlop Z1* at around 38-39psi hot. The arrows on the sidewall are unscathed and the shoulder of the tire is still squared off and untouched.

Caster...I think Vorshlag recommends max caster which gives you some more static negative camber. IIRC, Vorshlag ships their plates in the max caster setting so it is what it is.
