Hunter alignment and M models and active steering.

Took my 6 (active steering and dynamic drive) into a garage that had the hunter machine.

As soon as they put it on the system, it threw errors asking for this and that to be deactivated/disconnected. As it wasn't a BMW dealer, they said there was nothing more they could do.

Anyone else experienced this or know a way around it? I was quoted 25 for the test and I don't really want to know the BMW price because I bet it has a 0 on the end of it

Aaaahhh... it's because your car has Active Steering. I don't know of any independent wheel alignment places who can align an active-steering equipped car properly. You'll probably have to phone around the BMW dealers and haggle them down to a reasonable price. Cost of a KDS at BMW Battersea is about 280. I have seen some dealers do it for around 200, but that's only because people spent considerable time phoning around and playing one dealer off another.

Hi there, sorry to bring up an old thread but I have active steering and adaptive drive on my 645. Can I use Hunter kit or do I need to take it to a BMW garage?

Thanks

Dave
