What are good alignment numbers for street driving? I'm planning on getting one as well (though in GVR) as mine is quite bad ... Toe in at the rear and toe out in front. Its annoying how much the car tramlines and bump steers.

Just bumping this thread for those that are interested in getting an alignment done.

Did one today and had a great experience. Pat made sure the car was driving perfectly. He will adjust it as many times needed to ensure everything is in spec.

Great shop. They are also setting up a second alignment machine and will be getting it ready for the spring time.

This al tech shop doesn't have plates for all 4 wheels...I'd say it's great price wise but not where I'd want to do a perfect alignment...good for your average alignment job

So you should be saying the Subaru dealership will do BMWs better then the BMW dealership itself because they are not capable of doing it themselves.
