I am not sure bro. I don't think they did that great of a job, the steering is crooked and I am having to hold it to the left somehow. How about u?
It was Jim working on your car wasn't it? You should have requested Pat to do it maybe.

Pat took my car out and felt it wasn't centered and then made a couple more adjustments.

My only problem was when I asked for less toe up front instead of hooking the car up again he did it by eye... and from visual inspection I can tell my drivers side has a LOT more toe out then the passenger... not sure if I should get that double checked or not.

Yes, Jim did all the techincal stuff on my car. I will take it back to Pat and get him to work on it again.

At the end of the day, I am actually regretting the decision to go there cuz the car now feels strange and the steering feels like its all over the place.

Lesson learned, you get what you pay for. Not knocking anything on Pat or Jim, but they may just not have the experience working on newer cars. Next time I'll bite the bullet and take it to the stealership.

Hmm that's odd... they have a lot of experience with our cars actually since a lot of members from our forum do go to them. Does it feel like the car is pulling or does it feel like the car is moving around too quick with the slightest movement in the wheel?

Let me know how it goes when you go back, because I am thinking of going back and getting my front toe properly adjusted and am curious as to whether or not they will charge me the full alignment price for that.

SG E90 335i with M3(?) wheels at Bramalea City Centre last night just before 8pm. you pulled over in front of Goodlife to let someone out so i zipped past cause i was in a hurry lol.

also spotted my first 1M in the underground parking garage, also at BCC around the same time last night. it was orange, and looked mean as FUCK in person!

also i think this was 2 nights ago...AW E92 335 with blue plate lights on Nuffield Drive in Brampton (near Trinity) just before 11pm. I was sitting at the side of the street in my car waiting for my buddy to come out of his house.

Altech... to be honest I was very happy with my alignment... he was able to bring me all into stock specs on a pretty low car, although afterwards I did ask him to change things up a bit for me outside of specs. After the computer showed it was perfect Pat took it for a drive and felt the steering wasn't dead center even though the computer was saying it was, so he brought it back up and made a minor tweak and then took it for another drive and said it was perfect.

I did some testing after the alignment and the wheel is FINALLY centered for the first time ever.

I think that plan may also require some luck... lol... don't think it's that easy to get your hands on one.

Spotted an e90 black 335i with the whole murdered look and blacklines, slammmed... in the springdale area..... you drove past me at 1 km/h while I had half my car ripped open (one wheel off, fender off, side skirts off, half my bumper hanging and no trunk LOL) I give you a little signal, but your tints were darker then your paint so I couldn't see if you saw haha.

I was figuring out some stuff for a widebody conversion not doing an accident repair like my neighbours though LOL (they think I'm a mechanic), your car sounded SICKKK MAN, never heard that exhaust... if you're on here PM me with what setup you had.

kinda over done imo, but looks ok. asking wayyyyyyy too much however

Gotta bump this again because...

I think I saw this guy in Markham today!!!!!!! Really young Asian kid driving it. Got fed up with the traffic jam on the 404 so he cut behind me then cut over the double lines and floored it through the HOV lane. If he's on the forums...dude, you cause the cars behind you in the HOV lane to slam on their brakes!!

Looks like the rear spoiler is gone though, but he replaced it with a black ACS style spoile that looks like this in black (http://www.e90post.com/forums/attach...83718364)...in all honesty, it didn't help much. LOL.

People who do this on the highway in general drive me absolutely nuts. So many close calls I can't even count anymore. OEM pads/rotors have seriously saved my butt every time...less aggressive bite and I'd be in a bunch of fender benders by now.
