This stuff really excites me. I know...I know...I need a life.

ANYWAY....for whatever reasons, I've previously had to get my wheel alignment done elsewhere. They did a good job...at a reasonable price....and washed the car too!!

HOWEVER.....Carl did a wheel alignment on the 355 for me this past week...well, I guess for the new owner, really...I'm just the sucker paying for it...but....

What a difference! It's funny how you're happy with something, until you get something better and realise it wasn't as good as it could be.

Carl's machine is still the latest technology, and the same as used at Zagame, actually....but it's his skill that makes the difference.

The car feels so planted now....no moving around over irregularites on the road or under heavy braking (a 355 issue)

So...yeah..thanks, Carl. I'm thrilled.

I'm completely happy with the 308, but given what happened with the 355, I'm going to ask him to do a wheel alignment on that too...just in case I'm missing out on something there too.

Mind you, I don't have the bill yet. I might change my tune :)

I love my car. Buy your own

After not even realising you had a blown shock, your feedback credibility is somewhat diminished.

And no, Carls aligner is not the latest. Mine is 5 years newer, and has even more recent software too, yet also been superceded.

My clamps also grip any tyre, treaded or slick or semi, and go up to 24".

But, exactly as you say, its all in the operator.

And Carl is excellent.

The reason being, Carls aligner was in my shop, and you're not allowed in. And maybe the fact Carl respected that, speaks volumes.

Do wheel alignment machines need to be realigned to maintain accuracy?
