If you have adjustable camber plates and change your camber pretty often between street and track settings it might be a good idea to put it on a rack sometime to see if it's still within the specs.

This is my first BMW, so I'm not sure what the reference point is for checking. My last car was a WRX STI, and it seemed like the alignment was always off.

My car is completely stock, and I've been to Barber 4 times in the last 6 months, and I definitely get the car a little sideways both on track and on empty streets now and then, and didn't know if that kind of activity could get the toe off spec....although I can't tell from driving it...ie the steering wheel is straight and it tracks true.
