I would guess the bigger issue would be that the recall was already closed. They performed an inspection and the "repair". At that point you no longer have an open recall on your car.

Every engine has some sludge in it, if that's what they want to say there isn't much else to do but take them to court.

Zero or positive camber has it's place, Drift just isn't all that popular on this forum.

Lowered an inch I got the toe in and camber up to -1*24Ē. I would have needed the bushings to get the camber closer to 0*.

I installed LCAs to get less negative (closer to 0*) camber.

Why would it qualify as "enough of a BMW"? It isn't a BMW, it's a Toyota. You might get a free hat. As well as 2 free years of oil changes by a (not) trained 18 year old.
