+1 Definitely hit up Malek (Malekreza11) @ MRF. His performance alignment gets great reviews from forum members.

We own and track the E92 M3 we have, so we know the car very well.

Give us a call sometime!

I personally wouldn't take my car anywhere else besides MRF

clearly the testimonials in this thread alone should serve as a great indication as to the quality of his work...you wont be disappointed.

++1 These guys at R's Tuning are amazing and only spot I take my cars. If you are looking for a crew that has the highest level of detail to the work they do this is your place. I typically do all my own work on my cars and am completely anal about everything but for the few things I don't do myself(like alignment, corner balancing, etc..) R's is the only spot I trust.

And if you are looking for an abundance of knowledge about track setups for your alignment then R's Tuning is hand down the spot.

+3 Darin doesn't just align, he asks what you're going to do with the car because he sets it up accordingly. Track, street, combo... He's takes it all into consideration. He's the first person that's actually interviewed me before he actually started the alignment.
