Whaaaaaaaa???
 
Just came back from Crappy Tire to get an alignment. After a couple of hours, I went to the desk to ask a question. The guy says: "Oh yeah, I wanted to talk to you. We don't do alignments on BMW's. Sorry 'bout that". I asked why and he wasn't too sure. He thinks they don't have the specs, or something... They didn't even look at the car. Dweebs.

Anyways, do any of you have an idea where I could get an alignment, other than the $tealer?

Idiots they waited a couple of hours to tell you. Thats why I never go to Crappy tire anymore. Ive known some people that worked there and they were complete idiots that I would not trust with my bike never mind my car.

You should try Frisby Al Ive taken a couple cars there not sure if any have been BMW but they are always honest and professional. Even once telling a friend of mine it was not necessary for him to get an alignment after getting it on the lift and charged him nothing.

What idiots...That's why I would never let those people touch my car.

Duss Brothers Motors, on Richmond rd. The only do strictly BMW, they really know what they are doing. A little expensive, but still cheaper than the dealership, he will take the care to do it right, and he will only charge you the actual time it took them to do it.

Personnaly I don't like frisby tire, I brought my car there for a balance once, and they used a friggin impact gun to put my wheel bolts back on instead of a proper tourque wrench, ended up warping my rotors. And those bolts were a pain to take back off.

Just a heads up!

Not every place will do an alignment on BMW's or Mercedes. They need to put weight in and tied down properly.

dosn't matter if the equipment is old or new as long as you know how to use it. :P

He did mine after I lowered it, and it was bang on. He also replaced some bushings for free while he was in there.
