    I'm sat watching my car getting the tracking done, balancing checked and other bits.

    I've never really paid much attention to it before but this time I noticed the tools they used in locking the wheels straight.

    They have a flat disc that sits on the seat and the other end is a U shape bit of metal on the steering wheel.

    They also had a length of bar wedged in to the seat forcing the brakes on.

    I'm not keen in the thought of two lumps of metal being forced in to seat keeping the brakes on and steering wheel straight.
    I will check for damage after.

    What's people's thought on this method?
    Anyone had any damage caused by it?

    Standard, even my S3 has had this done, no issues to be honest, it shouldn't be locked in at full force.
