- they should be more familiar with the specs. for an X3 than a general front-end shop and less likely to mis-read what the alignment machine is telling them
- they may routinely ask customers what their usual passenger or cargo load is and put corresponding weights in the X3 prior to alignment
Make sure beforehand that they actually have the required alignment equipment in house and are not just going to contract it out.
One more thing worth fussing about - if you are happy with your steering wheel being properly centered now, tell them that you want to be sure it still is after the alignment.
