+1 for spinning wheels and tyres!

Just had my m3 front control arms installed and aligned.. The arms are magic, their service was top notch and priced extremely reasonable.

I would have thought pretty much any tyre shop could do a wheel align. It's not rocket science, just tell therm what you want the machine does the rest :

You would think so but there is actually a science in setting the car up for the intended use, and knowing how to adjust the camber caster setting on each application. You would be surprised of the horror stories you hear of...

and what exactly is it that you want, i.e what caster and toe angle? If you don't know.. and the shop doesn't know, then you'll probably do more harm than good.

a lot of 'wheel alignment' places just reset everything to zero... on a bmw it'll make the car handle like crap as we need a bit of caster camber and toe to get good steering feel and the car tracking straight.

Yeh stuff Spinning Wheels, never going back there. Their attitude towards cars is very narrow-minded. Not to mention they damaged the C63 when it was there...

Heasman Steering for sure.
