    As it happens ive just had a look at the hunter system in quickfit. Told me my front toe was out a smidge, £40 to straighten up. Each further angle adjusted would be £20. Bit steep imo, but probably worth the free check anyway :D

    Nooo Dont take it to them places..... It needs to be a specialist who know the chassis and knows the rear trailing arm has adjustment, as far as im aware they are not even set up for 4WA...

    Does the a3 8L have trailing arm adjustment? Might have to take it to the specialist who fitted the beam bushes, kwikfits machine showed no data for it...

    Mine had the hunter system..needed the subframe adjusted in the end but I must say I had hit a very large pot hole and slammed the rear wheel in the snow.
    Now drives very true and feels like a new car.
    The place I used in MK was the place most of the body shops took their cars to be aligned.whilst I was there found out that the local dealership used them as well.
    Kwikfit no.

    Need to be careful with a lot of places, some companies thinks that because they have these sensors on all four wheels, they call themselves four wheel alignment, when it's just tracking!

    I was happy with the service I got from Chemix, the guy was helpful and showed me all around the car what he could adjust, instead of just sitting in a waiting room!

    I was charged £30+vat(£36) for front tracking, and rear toe adjustment. He wasn't happy he couldn't get the rears into green though, I said I had adjustable tie bars to go on, so I think he charged me less, as I said I'd be back once I fitted them.

    Have you tried Damian at DPMPerformance? He's usually pretty good with these things.
