Alignment Recommendation
 
Hey guys,

can anyone recommend a good alignment shop in the GTA? Looking to get my E46 M3 aligned.

Thanks in advance

Why not just take it to bmw? I?ve never had an issue with their machines, even up to 22? wheels on my x5

Don't they charge like $200 for an alignment?

They do. Did it in December. It's $80 plus tax

Not a fan of Altech, went for an alignment when I didn't know that a rear control arm (camber arm) bushing was dust. They completely missed that it was destroyed and aligned with a disintegrated bushing. needless to say I'm out $1400 because my tires were shaved to nothing in 2,000 kms.

I know I went for an alignment, but you'd expect someone to check the parts they are adjusting in order to determine if the resulting job they do is worth it.

Also called them afterwards cause I had vibration in the wheel (when there was none before) and they told me, essentially, that it was my fault.

Not a fan.

LOL. Was looking for a recommendation too, sine I've had it with Altech after the last 2 fails at their place. Same as you - said shimmy's were common on my MDX, even though it was fine before the alignment. And my Subaru pulling to the right was because of the crown of the road, even though it was driving straight before they touched it, and now one tire is completely bald on the inside edge. Surprised to hear people with good reviews of the place.

Right now I would recommend Simone Performance in Aurora or Automatrix in Markham.
