Alignment

I went in and got an alignment done at the dealer a few days ago. When I got the car back, I still had to hold the steering wheel an inch to the right to make the car go straight. One of their techs drove the car with me and said the steering needed to be calibrated. 30 min later everything seems good. I was looking again at the alignment report and I notice it says Vehicle: F30 in the top left. Did my car get aligned to the wrong specs? I have a 2011 328 coupe (E92)

I don't have the stock specs for the E92 here, but I believe they would be different, yes.

Spoke to the service advisor, apparently that's just a manual entry and an F30 alignment is totally different.

Consider my eyes widened.

Hey it's just thrust angle, toe; camber. As your tech how F-30 procedure departs from E9x alignment, all details. Post here!
