And whatever you do, don't go to Kwik Fit as even though they have the good kit (Hunter) they are useless from my experience.

Couldn't agree more!!!

After Kwik Fit messed up my alignment and eventually refunded me, I got mine done by TTS in Bedford who also have a Hunter machine but know how to use it!

I did but it brought up a few places that didn't look great. Surely I'm not the only one who's lowered their r8 and needed it aligning . I just need a tried and tested place . Don't mind travelling . I've been burnt twice now trying to get this done.

One total cock up so it's even worse now as only did the front . Long story.

The other had the wrong clamps so would not fit as there was not enough space at the top between tyre and car.

Pulling my hair out now .....

Have you tried tyres galore in Leicester? They always manage to get the sensors on my RS4 even there is no gap between tyre and wheel arch. The place doesn't look like much but I always drive away with my car driving better than when I went in (which is not true of some of other places I've been to).
