Well guess what my car is still pulling to the left and im putting in a charge back on my credit card for this BS wheel alignment.

So seeing im now going somewhere else soon for an alignment and get my wheels put back on correctly so my tyres are directional again is there anything i need to ask about in regards to getting this done right on an X3?
BMW's are more challenging to align than many other cars but there are provisions to align all four corners. In my opinion they are best left to the dealer as many places don't like to screw with the trouble to set the camber and tow of the rear wheels. Dealers are used to it. The rears take a special socket as well.
