Lightbulb Charlotte, NC (zip 28210) BMW Alignment

Hi, a curb hit the tire...
Has anyone had experience with an alignment shop in the neighborhood? I'd rather avoid using $tealer Hendrick. It's for a Sport-Package equipped X5.

Thanks!

I'm surprised no one replied to you.

There is no need to get it aligned at the dealership.

In fact, some here explicitly say to avoid the dealership because they do crappy alignments.

+1000 BMW dealers are the LAST places to go.

Sorry for not replying, I thought youd read one of my ad nauseam alignment posts...

At least post up the page that shows what alignment they ended up giving you...

Sorry, I'm late to the game... After being told by the dealer my alignment was in spec even though the tires were wearing horribly and the car was extremely darty, I went to GMP and was very happy. They kind of nickel and dime you a bit but, they do good work.
