The difference here is that you need that special screw to adjust the camber and the caster on BMW and Mercedes.

The next agenda item is to buy a J2534 Passthru cable to be able to "update/reprogram" the software on all E90. $3289 (a cable, a proprietary laptop, and batery charger to keep staedy voltage during the reprogramming).

I thinking about buying one to cater to all Mercedes, Audi and BMW owners in Ottawa ($139 per reprogram compares to $279 at dealers).

So I'm in a bit of a pickle...I need an alignment for sure, my steering wheel is off centre.

It is off centre because I accidently oversteered into a curb at very low speed while in Hamilton...go figure. So I don't know the status of my suspension, it seems fine...no issues turning...just seems like the alignment is off.

Think I should have the dealer check it out? I am under warranty.
