Alignment Specs

Anyone know what the front camber specs for an E-36 M should be? I had a minor "issue" with my right front wheel and had to have it in the shop for a while. They checked the alignment while they had it and said the front camber was at close to 7 degrees on both sides. They say it won't pre-maturely wear out the tires and it will make it handle like it is on rails... I just thought I would ask to see what you guys say.

The BMW Dealer said that the specs should be closer to 4 1/2 - 5 degrees of camber...

1997 E36 M3 - running stocker style right now...

I'm pretty sure camber should be pretty close to 0 degrees, but more on the negative side. Could be wrong but 7 degrees seems huge..
