Actually, on stock camber you want higher pressures which will help reduce how much the tire rolls over onto the sidewall. Then its a double edged sword because your pressures will be higher and the front end will be very twitchy and skatey. Then you'll understeer constantly.

As I said on M3Forum...you need camber and roll stiffness on the front axle or less roll stiffness on the rear axle. The cheapest thing you can do is disconnect the rear sway bar...not sure if that will help a whole lot. I would buy front camber plates which will pay for itself over a couple of events as your tires will last a lot longer.

E46s like a relatively high front spring rates, -3.5 camber or more, and a big front sway bar.
