Active Autowerk can do alignments as well as Flat6 Motorworks...

I'm sure there's more, but this is where I've gone!

If you still haven't passed Orlando and are able to make a detour, we perform alignments and corner scale balance.

We can do installs, and could perform your alignment as well. I have done thousands of alignments, and personally owned 2 e9x M3's.

If you are going to be in Miami, there is no one better then Ken Heiden at The Alignment Factory. 305-238-0934 That's all he does and he's the best. Taken all of my cars to him for 22 yrs.

Active does not do alignments, they stopped doing them years ago. I've been to alignment factory and they're ok if you need a stock alignment, that's it, but if what you need is a good corner balance and a good string alignment give Raul at Flat 6 a call. They know how to get this done well. They have been racing P cup cars for years and Raul was part of a racing team at ALMS, no BS.

Ken does corner balancing and string alignment also. I've seen at least 20 race cars at his shop. No idea who Raul is but, when Ken opens @ 8am, there is a line out the door for a reason. He is cash only and he's a perfectionist. Just FYI. I have no incentive , just giving an honest recomendation.

Btw I have no affiliation with flat 6 or alignment factory. Figured what the OP is looking for is more than a basic alignment on a hunter machine. I've used them both before flat 6 and align fact. on all my previous M3s.

Glad everything worked out, I was there yesterday getting my new Michelins mounted. They do great work and always willing to help and they're usually there til very late and will accommodate you in case of any issues.

Turned out it was the rotors, probably happened when me and the car went swimming in Mississippi and had to do some hard braking to avoid traffic coming to sudden stops. I know rain storms are scary, but driver overreaction during these situations can be even scarier....

Would love to go, but I don't anticipate being able to attend an event for at least another month or two at soonest. Thanks for the invite though, I'm sure I'll see you out at either Sebring or Homestead at some point.

I understand. Looking forward to hanging out at the track. We have a good group of friends here.
