Wheel Alignment Specs for 60 plate E92 335d

Due to the fantastic condition of our roads in the UK my steering wheel is slightly out so need an alignment.

Does anyone have the full specification for a wheel alignment on a 2011 60 plate E92 335d M-Sport with 19'' 313 alloys?

The garage only has specs for 08 plate E92 that I'm not sure is for m-sport suspension.

Thanks

From my personal bad experience, do NOT experiment with alignment centers that do not have the exact settings for your car, or experienced on similar cars.

See my previous posts if you want.

It took me 3 months and 4 different settings at various shops experimenting on Hunter, and i ended up getting a KDS to turn my car drivable again.

Thanks Spandeli. Just hoping someone has the exact settings for the wheel alignment.

Out of curiosity do you know what settings you used?

Sorry for being a noob..not a technical person..does M Sport E92 has different alignment settings to the E92 SE? Do we have active steering in ours? I am thinking of getting Hunter's alignment as well in the next few weeks now that the weather is better.

I have zero idea what settings they used, but i what i know is that since my car at the end was taken to the dealer and was performed a KDS then im pretty sure they used the factory settings.
Bounty im pretty sure that MSport settings are different to Se, since it has different suspension.

Could really do with somebody helping me out. My local garage who has all the right equipment but not the right spec has tried twice to straighten my car up with no luck.
I have rang the stealers for a quote on alignment as they have all the right specs and they quoted me 180 for a supposed 1.5 hour job. Absolute blatant lie!

It's bloody annoying that the British roads are left in a state and it knocks the tracking out on my 335d, I have to pay 180 to fix it!

fpo, if they had the right / decent optical 3d alignment equipment they would have the database on the computer that operates the equipment.

as said, go somewhere that has the gear!

even without the settings, if they can't get your steering wheel straight they obviously don't know what they are doing.
