Pure BS by the dealer. Alignment price is high even without the misc charge. In Houston, the BMW dealerships charge around $159. Sometimes you can google and find a coupon for $129.

Well, you are wrong, but I'm sure you will realize this once you take a look at some BMWs. F10s use M14x1.25 bolts. If you want the locking bolts to match your factory bolts, buy the black ones.
