Reasonably priced 2 wheel toe alignment?

Need an alignment on my E30, only thing that is adjustable is the toe in the front wheels. Therefore I have no need for a 4 wheel alignment, I only need a 2 wheel alignment and even then just a toe alignment.

Recommendations in the in and around the GTA?

Most places say it's cheap... then in small print (for most vehicles) They will charge you more because it's BMW and you're right - toe is the only adjustment. = ripoff.

Why did the toe change?

look to spend about 70-80 bucks for a "proper" bmw front wheel alignment. Woodbridge alignment is a great shop. I've dealt with them for years.

$60 Altech Automotive. That's where I go to get mine done. Ask for Pat. He'll walk you through it.

I have read many reviews that pat at altech is great, however that $60 price is for a 4 wheel alignment.

Curious why you think you only need a 2 wheel alignment? you know that the rear can be adjusted right?

Unless he has eccentric trailing arm bushings, the back is not adjustable.
