BMW dealership - they do alignment for lowered cars too; had my X5 aligned after I lowered it and they told me that they can do cars that are OEM height to extremely low.
They have an awesome alignment machine. 100 bucks... a reasonable price in my opinion.

Have any of you guys gone to BMW Autohaus for an alignment? Apparently they have 1 alignment setup regardless of which year or model BMW you have. I declined to have them do it when they stated they do not want to have the hassle of aligning the M3 to the specific M3 factory alignment.

I find the BMW dealerships in the GTA cut corners so much. Can anyone recommend one? I've had bad experiences at BMW autohaus, parkview, and endras, and that's me plus other BMW owners I know. Anyone know which garage is supposed to be the best/(honest and ethical) in Toronto?

which dealership is this in toronto? the cheapest i found was for $149. $249 with active steering.

I wanted to go to the independent shops but I'm not sure if they can do m cars with active steering.

also with alignment, from what i have read, you need ballast in the front, rear and trunk. Also its good to do it with a full tank.

I never could get a straight answer from independent shops or dealerships
