Alignment after coilover install

About how much does an alignment cost on an e90 that has had coilovers installed? Can anyone recommend a good shop for alignment on an e90 in the South Orange County, CA area? Thanks in advance!

Should be between $100 and $120 for the alignment.

I'd like to know a specific place as well. I talked to my dealer, and they're charging $300+ :

I'd say it's more important to have a good tech do the alignment, on a machine that is calibrated often. The type of machine can be important, but an alignment master can do just a good of a job with a set of strings. You can make an adjustment in one area that affects another adjustment. Find some track guys and see where they go, usually they'll have good recommendations.

The dealer is bad at alignment. At least they were on my car.
