Do i need camber plate when i lower the 528?

Ok i had a e36 M3 and had lower it with H&R springs, dealer did all the work and gave me an aligment on it to and never mention anything about me needing a camber plate or kit?! But now i just got a 97 528i and thinking of lowering it to. I have seen some H&R spring and other. But if i am lowering the vehicle only 1.2 in the front and like 1.0 inch in the rear ( correct me if i am wrong ) with H&R, do i need to get camber plate up front and camber kit in the rear? And where can i get the rear camber kit at?

you don't "need" them, but they will save your tires...

i would suggest getting them, plus once you have them you can adjust them and make the car suit your driving style a little more...
