Best Alignment Shops

Anyone here know if there is somewhere good in London that does BMW alignments right? I went to a place called Rob Clarke Automotive and the car felt worse than before

It's not in London but it's worth the drive.

Can Alignment is imo the best shop for alignments and corner balance for both street use and track by b/f and I take all our cars there.

Good for lowered cars? Do they have in-ground racks?

I agree with E30 Girl, Can-Alignment is a great shop! Great service and very reasonably priced

I'm not sure what he charged when I did mine I did the corner balance and alignment and my b/f did both to his car so Scott gave us a package price. Just call him he is super nice and knowledgeable.

I can't wait to take my car here in the spring considering all the good things I've read online. Mostly because he's only a 10 minute drive from me, lol. I'm glad I heard about his place on here though, cause you'd never even know there was a shop where he's located. I've driven by there at least a few times a week for years and never had a clue. It just looks like any other house with a big garage behind it. The only thing that somewhat gives it away is sometimes he'll have a race car parked out near the road.

another vote for Scott at Canalignment. Super nice, helpful, and professional. I can't imagine there being too many guys in the area with anywhere near his kind of experience in suspension work Or on the track.
