Is that the maximum rear toe in you could get with the Z3M trailing arms?

I could have gotten more, but wanted to run 0 in the rear for traction and tire wear. I set my camber and toe plates in the middle range when welding them to my subframe. You could set them more aggressively when welding them to the subframe to allow more adjustment but I knew I wouldn’t need it so welded my adjustment plates conservatively.

Does it feel like the Z3M trailing arms have more toe out then the E30 arms do?

Have you tried running some toe in in the back?
Should help with traction and tire wear.

No I have only had it set to zero toe. I think the Z3M arms are dimensionally the same as standard E30 arms when I comes to camber/toe. They create a wider wheelbase because they do come out farther than standard E30 trailing arms though.
