Z4 non-M coupe: fixed camber plates?

All of my shocks and struts are blown, so it's time to replace those and the mounts. While it's apart I'd like to gain some negative camber. On my E30, I run Turner Motorsports fixed camber plates that retain the OEM rubber-isolated strut mounts. Is there such a thing for the Z4? Hours of google searching did not yield results. Some here have mentioned a Rogue Engineering product that sounded promising, but I can't find a source. I run the stock wheels and all-season 245/35/18 tires in front. Any advice would be appreciated.

Dinan makes a fixed plate for the non-m Z4. They are, however, quite expensive for what they are (~$325+). At that price the Ground Control plates are about ~$50 more and the Vorshlag plates are ~$125 more. From my understanding, the GC plates are more daily friendly and the Vorshlag are more intended for autocross and track.

Thanks for your reply, very informative post. That Dinan unit is exactly what I wanted, except they cost 3X what my E30 ones were, and deliver 1/3 of the camber shift. The GC and vorschag ones don't retain the OEM rubber-isolated mounts, so won't work for my goals.

I love my Z, but my E30 is far easier to work on and parts (including mods) are a fraction of the cost. I just retired on the cheap and need to sell one of my BMWs. This type of thing is why I'm favoring hanging onto the E30, even though the Z is a much better car overall.

The Dinan plates used to be $150 back in the day... you should check Turner, they may have a fixed plate for the Z

Turner does in fact still make the fixed plates I have on my E30, minus 2 degrees for $150. Also one for the E36 M3. But no application for the z4.

I would think e46 non-m plates would bolt up to a non-M Z4...
