My BMW dealer has had 3 of my wheels refinished over the years at Chicago Wheel Service in Elk Grove Village. No complaints.

That's a good price. The dealer charged $150 each, but they paid for 2 of them. :-)

My steering wheel angle sensor is off because my steering wheel is off center - causing DSC, DBC and start off acceleration error msgs. Do you guys know where I can get an alignment done who can also reset my steering wheel angle sensor?

Thanks for the info, I ended up going to Advanced Automotive in Palatine. Great shop and the guys that own the shop are very friendly. A&L Auto refers all their alignment to these guys. Would highly recommend.

They aligned my car, and reset the steering wheel angle sensor. Everything is back to normal now and the car tracks straight as an arrow.
