Default rear camber bolts or camber plates

Pretty much made up my mind to go with the BC coilovers, BR series, and was just wondering which camber adjustment method for the rear is better for me. I dont race the car and I dont have a really large rim/tire setup. What are the pros and cons for each setup? so far the only thing I can think of for the plates is removing the rear seat each time I want to adjust the camber. As far as the bolts go I think the only thing is the range of adjustment is a limitation. Do I have to run a specific brand of bolts with the BC BR series? Any help on which camber adjustment method I should get would be appreciated.

if you can afford the rear camber plates do it, most alignment centers don't know how to use camber bolts and mess them up or install them in a fashion that they come loose and allow your alignment to change. i had eibachs not that brand of rear camber bolt matters, also if you run retarded wheel and tire setups a combo of camber plates and bolts allow for extra clearence from coilovers.

Which is pathetic considering how many mcpherson strut cars out there that get aligned all the time. 99% of the time they are "Toe n Go's"

Also. im running front plates, front bolts (in addition to the stock), AND rear bolts. I do my own alignments though with the assistance of whoever's rack it is. Havent had any of them loosen up on me, i check them every so often though.
