Just make sure the shop weights the car to specs before doing the alignment:
150 lbs in the drivers seat
150 lbs in the passenger seat
150 lbs across the back seat
40 lbs in the trunk
Can you explain to me alittle bit more about the weights mentioned above?
those weights are to simulate normal driving conditions on wich there are people in the car..
on BMW TIS they mention this..
but honestly, nobody does it...
i've work on a shop for siummer and i asket them about this and he said to me that this is done in order to get precision aligment.. but on everyday driving this will hardly affect it..
and honestly, i doubht the dealer does the weights. im pretty sure they just put ut there make sure its all under the specs with regard to aligment geometry and thats it..
