Hey Guys and Gals,

Who makes the best camber plates for our 07 Cooper S?

I think the right answer for that right now is "nobody".

Ireland Engineering makes plates for the 2007 cars. But, if you can wait for Helix to get there plates made, I think you should wait.

For the pre-2007 cars, the Helix plates have a much better repuation than the Ireland plates. But, the Helix plates are also much more expensive than the Ireland plates.

A quick update, I installed Ireland Engineering's fixed camber plates. The car is sitting at -1.2 left side and -1.3 right side. At the same time I also ditched the run flats and put Yokohama S-Drives on the car.

The car was fun before, but now it's funner! (I know, that ain't a word!)

I'd highly recommend getting a pair if you're looking for some additional camber.

On my 07 last season, I had -0.9 and -1.1, it seems the Ireland plates only provide less than half a degree, I wonder why?
