Camber plates for kW clubsports

Had search but to no avail. Can I know what camber plates to get if I'm running on KW Clubsports? Need more camber in front. Anyone can direct me to a brand that fits the KW CS perfectly? Thanks

Thanks for the tip . Will do that soon. In the meantime, can anyone confirm if the clubsports are shipped with top mount that are camber adjustable or those are optional? Getting conflicting answers on the net. Any assistance is much appreciated.

KW CS has plates included. I run this suspension. My camber is -3.5 F and -2.5 R. Very happy with the setup

You can get adjustable camberplates directly from KW for the clubsport.

Kaiv agreed my bad. Actually I recalled I went ahead to get the CS over the V3 for the reason it has the option to adjust the camber should i track the car. Been more than a year since, and the last 2 alightment shops I went to told me they are not adjustable. That really confused me for a moment !

The adjustable camberplates are indeed optional.

If you scroll down the page you'll see adjustable camberplates shown under "optional accessories".

On second sight however it looks as the option only refers to the "uniball" in the camberplates.

No.

They are not optional - only for the V3. All clubsports include them by default. There are two different plates you can get, 1 has a dust seal on the bottom (default) and the competition one that doesn't (and allows a bit more travel - something you do not want on the clubsports if you run the car low, because it will rub the fender liner.) You already get a much shorter shock body than stock.

In the USA at least, all Clubsport kits for E9X M3 come with camber plates standard. One can of course custom order without them, but I've never had/heard of any customer/person do that.
