Thanks for that, unfortunately BMW charge around $350 for an alignment which i think is quite unreasonable here in Australia, the dealer said most people take their cars elsewhere because of that. The dealer of course never mentioned that tool, so i may need to find someone that can do BMW's, unfortunately i have never met a dealer employee who is friendly and approachable they are all assholes so I don't let them touch my car, I always go elsewhere.
