You mention bump steer, but do you really mean it's only an issue when you hit a bump?

How low it is that it cannot be adjusted to zero toe? If that's truly the case, you may need custom tie rods.
I believe extremely lowered would actually toe in, but I'm not 100% sure on the E90.

Negative camber should be increased on a lowered car. Do you want more or less negative camber?

Camber plates would allow you to adjust camber and caster, but not toe.

Maybe you can post your alignment sheet for us to see.

alignment blues

thanks for the nod,
i did buy rear camber adjusters, but thinking toe adjusters might be more important.
and don't want to order pillowball if it won't work out with the h&r springs.
need new rubber but am holding off till she rides on rails.
at the moment bumps are not sure footed, seems to be a bit too squirly when hitting bumps, so i assume bump steer is a factor.

If your ride is too low, you could be bouncing off of the bump stops which will give you horrible ride/handling

Front camber is OK but they should be evened out.
Front toe should be zero or slightly negative.
Rear camber looks OK
Rear toe is bad and will make your rear end pretty twitchy.

For street you likely want zero toe front and rear for stability and reduced tire wear.

Looks like E90 doesn't have slotted front strut towers like the E46 does. You could do it ghetto and put slots into your towers.

Still leaves the extreme toe on passenger rear.

and yes I got a full refund from the first shop.
I guess they did not know BMW.
