Rear camber maxed out

I have lowered my suspension on H&R sport spring which gave me a 1.5 drop in the rear. I have been told that my camber in the rear is maxed out and cannot be adjust anymore. Is there any thing that I can do ? Is there any type of aftermarket camber plates for the rear? If so who makes it?

At 1.5" of lowering, there should be no way the rear camber adjuster is maxed out. Either they have the wrong alignment specification data for your M3 or they don't know what they are doing. The M3 lower rear control arms have plenty of camber adjustment. The car also has plenty of room for toe adjustment as well.

It is quite easy to get -2.0 on the rear stock height.
There is an elliptical washer on the rear arm that is adjusted. Stick your head under your car and see how much it is turned. Mine is only turned about 2/3's of the way to get -2.

if it is maxed out and you are lowered by 1.5 inches you have -3 or more in the rear and that is too much.
