There are two places that I've used, I don't have the coordinates of the first one but I've use Woodbridge Allignment (905-851-3500) a couple of times 4817 Hwy#7, 1 light East of Islington and located behind LGE Body Shop.

BTW who did the work on the thrust arms?

BTW: on the E39 BMW says when an alignment is done the DSC/ASC system needs to be adjusted. It needs to know the new steering wheel position for strait ahead position.

I don't know how important this really is, but it is something to think about.

IMO this would be minor since the majority of the system is based on the inputs from the wheel speed sensors.
