Just put new tires on our 2002 325. The car does not seem to track as well
as it did before the tires were put on. I thought to have a front end
alignment, but the dealer wants $250 (rip off!!) and is suggesting front
bushings also.. for another $600.. rip off #2.
Just interested in what you are paying for front end alignments?
Actually, what you want/need is a 4 wheel alignment, and that generally
costs between $75 and $100. The only tricky thing about BMW alignments
is they specify that the car be "loaded" with a certain amount of weight
in each of the seats before the alignment is checked / adjusted.
My dealer charged $190 about 18 months ago. You've probably already covered
this, but have you checked the tire pressures? Check the plaque on your
doorjamb - probably around 29 lbs. front and 33 rear when cold.
