How about if you are running on coilovers. Has anyone been to a Bmw dealer with coilovers on and did they do a good job?

Just booked Altech for Friday. I'll let you know how it goes. Figure the top 3 are basically equal, so location was the deciding factor.

Thanks. I live downtown too and I'm inclined towards Altech too but the 180 degree from the OP was kinda weird.

So, I just got back from my alignment job at Altech.

Nothing but good things to say. Pat did a great job and from what I saw, he has all the right computerized equipment. He let me watch the whole procedure and explained the process in detail.

Although my car drove great, with no pull or shimmy prior to the alignment, it was surprizingly very out of whack. It seems to drive even smoother now in my short trip home.

If you drop your car be sure to have an alignment done!

I'll be going back the next time I need an alignment for sure.

Perfect! I'll call them tomorrow morning to set it up for next week. He charged you $60?

Getting mine done tomorrow. Just put a new staggered set on last week and did the alignment but the steering wheel is not dead on straight. Just slightly off, no big deal but would like to still get it done. Will update here once done.

Aligned my daily driver @ Altech yesterday. Pat commented Rocco did a clean job with installing my coilovers + camber plates!

Did the alignment today. Pat did a great job. And the steering wheel is straight now.
Pat is a very nice guy and he is passionate about what he does. And he does it best.
Definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Sorry for a crappy picture but it is the only one I have.

Aligned my STI this evening. Pat was willing to stay late to accommodate my appointment and got the alignment up to specs quick.

Two thumbs up for Altech!

Does anyone know if they do cars with Active Steering, and if so what the cost is?

Just had an alignment service at Altech. Fast and professional. This is a stand up shop here. The price was right too

Do they fix the steering angle sensor, steering angle collaboration, active steering malfunction or whatever?

I have multiple lights on because this next shop didnt align it properly.

You need to re-calibrate the steering sensor. A bt tool can do this.
