If it makes any difference it is E39 based but has the front axles from an E36.
have a look at the thread below.... It's from the e30 build era but I suspect the same may work for you and the e36 uprights.
Ignore the first few posts but the last three should be useful to you.
The trick for the IVA is to set up a degree or so of toe-out and pump up the tyres to make the steering light.
I think Patrick's good description of road testing to set up the right amount of toe-out will be useful.
Good luck with your re-test,
