    Stealer Wheel alignment print out - your thoughs - PS i paid £165 for this end result

    My thoughs are the rear should have been adjusted better than this, particularly the rear camber...

    If you're not happy, why didnt you ask them to adjust it better whilst there, as they would of handed you the slip at same time, also £165, damn what they use for that price.

    You would think they'd be able to afford a new ink cartridge at that price

    My dealer quoted around the same to align my old 8L S3. I ended up speaking to one of their tech's who told me who they used to do all there alignment work, and went directly to them, virtually cutting the bill in half.

    Rear camber is way out, not sure what adjustment there is for that. Is it a quattro?

    The rear camber can be adjusted very easily by the cam bolts (1 on each side) I'm sure I posted a pic of rear axle a while back somewhere......

    Yes my main disappointment is the print out, fancy robbing me of the satisfaction of consistent ink quality on the report.....

    well it turnout I got this free gratis anyway. I have some other work done and when I checked the invoices they forget to charge my card for the 165 which was on a separate invoice. Justice is done!

    Think lll get a proper job done else where for a lot less

    Need to get my car sorted with 4 Wheel alignment after getting my coilovers fitted a few months back.
    You say your not happy with the adjustment, what are you looking for when viewing the print-out above?
    I assume they have set figures they are aiming for depending on the make/model of the vehicle?
    Can anyone explain this a bit more for me.

    Hopefully someone here who is knowledgable enough will see your question and give an explanation.

    My problem was that I had odd wear on my tires.very inside edge, so I asked for a 4 wheel alignment. They didn't do one at first as they said the tires were not wearing unevenly. I said your right, this is be because they are 4 brand new tires, now get it aligned you idiots.....

    then when I went to collect I was given this print out. They told me thy made adjustments but this is total BS as thy couldn't give me a before and after printout, just this one.

    The rear camber is on the limit and unbalanced. Particularly the left side. The fronts could be better also.
    Luckily their attempt to rip me off failed as I haven't actually paid. Ha

    Would also like to know this as I'm in the same boat after getting my coilovers fitted.

    Be good to have some figures which are considered good after alignment and what to look for.

    Here's a printout from the workshop manual. You'll need the build code from the sticker in your spare wheel well, or your handbook. In my case, the S3 (highlighted in pink) has a suspension build code of UB5.

    Are you sure that's proper 4 wheel alignment with print out etc and not just bog standard tracking? If so, that's ridiculously cheap!
