It won't necessarily diagnose WHAT parts are bad...but it WOULD tell you that the rear is out of adjustment...

You CAN align a car without weights...but if BMW suggests it, I listen almost 100% of the time. You aren't smarter than the engineers at multi-million dollar car company.

Here is some info for you to read which describes exactly what I'm talking about.

I will admit my source is Dinan as I have the original alignment sheet from the Stage 2 suspension on my car (done at the Dinan facilities in Cali) and when I was looking at it, I started wondering things I researched...
