Wheel Alignment recommendations in Orlando

Hi guys - I am looking to get wheel alignment done on my 335. Can anyone recommend a place around Orlando where they have had a good experience? I found via google nix and black, irishmikes and Europa. Will be calling Fields tomm to check price as well.

Thanks in advance!

Fields charges $149 which seems quite high...

I've always taken my car to a shop on OLD dixie highway in kissimmee. I don't recall the name of the place but it's in the same plaza as SPEEDZONE, last building to the right.

Speedzone
2775 Old Dixie Highway Kissimmee, FL 34744


Last two times I went I paid $65 lowered with 19" wheels.

They work mostly BMWs

Don't go to fields. If you're going to go to a dealership go to mini. They have an in ground alignment rack so no worry about your bumper getting dragged.

I recommend not going to irish mikes.

Thanks for the heads up on Irish mikes. Scheduled an appointment with Europa. Will update this thread with my experience in case anyone in the future is looking for a reliable place.

This is true, and I've heard positives from people who have gotten alignments their.

I've gotten my car aligned here recently and they did a spot on job. Mind you my car is quite low and I demand satisfaction on my alignments lol.

Update - took the car to the Performance Race Solutions. Friendly honest staff and did a good job on the alignment. Price is up there at $125 but still about $40 less than the dealership. Would def recommend.

I go to Heaven Tires for all my tire and alignment needs. They even have road force balancing at a great price. Rudy is the owner and he is very friendly and trustworthy.

I just called Orlando Mini and waited on the line for about 30 minutes before I spoke to the new "service manager" -- I then proceeded to ask him if they do alignments on my vehicle (09 335i) -- he told me to hold for a bit and came back on the line and this is what he said:

"I know we used to do the alignments on most bmw's but sometimes they require special tools, and I don't feel comfortable doing work on them in the event that something goes wrong". Really?

I just hung up.

I know they charge $99 and they have a 10% off coupon for labor online.

fwiw.

He gave you honest advice, I got the same from walking in to tire kingdom. He told me he did not want to charge me money to do a half ass job because he knew I would come back and complain to him. He told me the dealership has special tools required to perform alignments for BMWs.

I called around a bit too to see which shops can do an alignment on my car. Came down to Field's stealerships, Performance Race Solutions(PRS), and Firestone. Firestone couldn't do it. Stealership wanted $139 w/coupon. Chose PRS bc I needed springs and shocks installed too. They did everything in about a day. Dropped it off one afternoon, picked it up the next day. Friendly staff, good prices, and their 4 corner alignment machine is state of the art. Alignment from them was $120 I think.
