We usually run moderately high camber on the street and max camber for competition. So if you are running very low street settings, you will end up with more toe out for competition.

I could live with that....

but, when I went from -1.5 street to -3.0 track, I got 1/3" toe out...
on EACH side. I've got GC plates with stock springs.

So I just have to keep it simple and run a compromise, -2.5 static.

Another reason to go with Vorshlag.

Noob question: what's the difference of these upper perches vs OEM?

These perches are meant for oem or sport spring use.

So do these affect/improve the car's handling compared to oem?

Yes. If you drive it like it was meant to.

This allows more camber than the stock top mounts and it allows easy switching between light camber for the street and higher camber for the track.

We have fitment information for the OEM non-EDC and the KW V3 struts. We're still looking for an EDC car to measure the strut profile.

Should be exactly the same. TCKR camber plates have been fitted to both EDC and non-EDC cars here at my shop without issues so the profile should be exactly the same.

How much travel is regained when using these Camber Plates compared to using OEM hats?

This is pretty important, since the M3 has limited travel from the factory as is.
