Tough to get a good photo in the garage since it's middle of winter here but hope these help. That red C2 is running very aggressive camber, probably more then most would along with a very low suspension. I literally did 2 weeks of research before settling on those figures myself.
Your car looks great! I think mine will be lower and that is what will make all the difference, the red one I posted seems much lower than yours, I wouldn't consider that aggressive camber either. Here is a photo of Duwerke's old 911 with same specs except 20" (20x9.0 et43 and 20x12.0 et53):

Yes, you are correct. I am also lowered and that is what I am basing my measurements on. If your comfortable with running big neg camber then you will be fine. Is BC guaranteeing fitment?

I suppose you can make room if you're willing to go as low as the above car. My photos are a little deceiving due to the angle but I'm pretty sure the top of the tire is tucked both front and rear.

You'll love the wheels. I've had two sets and can't say enough about the quality you get for the money.

No they are not, I supplied the specs! Duwerke is "guaranteeing" the fitment, hahaha. The man is a fitment expert, I am happy that he helped out and convinced me to run this setup. Here are couple more photos of his setup (not much neg camber!):

Seeing your photo's I can tell that if you go lower (as I plan to do) your wheels would tuck in. I am glad to hear that you are happy with them (and more than one set too), I have a couple of friend's that have BC's on their BMW's and they have nothing but good things to say about them.
