Just got my alignment done at Alignments Plus next to BMW of Bellevue. Look for the owner Glenn Conner and mention my name Johnny Lin. He will take care of you. Glenn is also a BMW enthusiast. The number is (425)746-7852. They are the cheapest in the area as I know and great job as well

Or you can also call the 360 Autobody owner Dave Stewart to hook you up with Cantrell Motorsports. Dave has a good relationship with them and Cantrell's owner is also Dave's buddy. Dave's cell is (206)947-4599

I had my Matt Black Wheels on when I drop off to the Alignments Plus and got the car back without a single scratch on my wheels. Since my is a Matt Black wheels, it's way more easier to get scratch than everybody else, but it went all good

By the way, if you guys are going through Dave Stewart to get the hook up with Cantrell, just mention my name to Dave as well.

Cantrall is an all around shop, I think they do DME flash's and installs. I would let a shop that did alignments only to do alignments lol.

+1, that is why I ended up choosing the Alignments Plus. Cantrall does have a great reputation and quality works, but I would rather have someone that is special in the alignment to do my car. Since I have the Matt Black wheels, so I feel more confidence with Alignments Plus to do so.

Do they either let you sit in the car while aligning or put weights on the driver's side while aligning? I;ve used Omni, Fordhal and Speedware with all excellent resutls, but maybe I will give the alignment plus a chance?
