Need one shop to install m3 Control arm/wishbone kit and do alignemnt

I have seen some good recommendations for an alignment here, but what about a full service shop that will do an install as well in house?

Thx
this will help me make a purchase

Give Ivo@Columbus Auto a call he can to the install in his sleep.

But the alignment he can't do but he has a buddy with the alignment equipment and he races that he can send you to.

Thanks

i just worry about the drive between shops. and want to minimize the cost
I assume the cost will be 1 hour labour to install, and approx $70-100 for alignment

I used to use Woodbridge alignment on Hwy7, not sure if I will go to them for this car

Talk to Ivo about that, he won't steer you wrong, I remember when I did mine, I had to let the car settle first before I did anything else.

Yeah, Ivo told me the same thing. He will align it enough that the car is drivable, so you don't have to worry about going far distances.
It makes sense to give the car some time to settle with all the new bushings, especially subframe bushings.

I had some work done at RMP this week also. Even Jon from Bimmersport sometimes shows up at RMP! Jon likes RMP so much that the last time he was there, he brought a bunch of his friends with him so they could meet Rocco.

A lot of E90Post guys use Altech Alignment.

I had them install my adjustable rear toe arms and do be alignment. One hour labor is all the charged. Make than reasonable and super convenient.
