E92 Geometry /wheel alignment

Does anyone know what can be adjusted on these?, just looking to get a hunter wheel alignment carried out, as Iíve noticed some outside edge tyre wear on front, been quoted £70 (front and rear) plus addition £25 each adjustment?

Does that sound about right?

£25 per each adjustment sounds a bit dubious.
I pay between £70/£100 for a front & rear hunter Geo dependent upon who serves me at my local place, no 'additional adjustment' fees.
Maybe this £25 each adjustment charge is because it's a diesel coupe

Iím assuming the £70 covers the front and rear toe in-out adjustment on all 4 corners, then the £25 each adjustment covers the castor/camber etc if they can be adjusted on this car?

I donít know what can be adjusted.

Mine is only minor on the outside edges, just presumed it may need the geometry checking at the least, so was preparing for the inevitable Ďitís all out of specí when it goes in.

Should the rear camber be checked with a certain amount of fuel in the tank?
