Default How important is a couple points of camber difference?

Just finished all the STR mods for my S, and took it in for an alignment. I requested -3.3° camber in the front, and they got it to -3.5°. Now, I know 0.2° isn't much, but I'm wondering if it's enough to make a difference from optimal (which I understand to be around 3.3). I've only ever autocrossed it stock, so I'm just going by other people's setups to come to that right now. And if it is enough to make a difference, is it enough of a difference that you'd pressure them to tweak it, or good enough?

I'm similarly not thrilled about how well they centered the wheel—it's likewise 'good enough', but perceptibly higher on the right side when going straight. :/

So that's a vote for "a couple points doesn't matter" I take it.

I would say it doesn't matter, if it was -1.5 instead of -3.5, then yes you might want to get them to fix it, but .2 won't be noticeable.

I'm SURE their measurement system doesn't have any error in the measurement either.

Only you can determine what the best camber is for your car. You are close enough for a starting point.
