I have a BMW service advisor who I feel is very honest and trustworthy. I told him I was replacing my run flat tires (Bridgestone Potenza) with Conti ExtremeContact DWS tires. He said the Conti's are great tires and told me to have someone else install them because the BMW dealer charges too much. I also wanted an alignment and he insisted that I have the dealer do this because he said no one else can do it properly (due to a special piece of equipment they have). So he said "get your tires installed elsewhere and come back and have us do the alignment for $200." Here's where it gets messy... the shop that installed my tires (5 star rating from Tire Rack) told me that the BMW dealer was full of sh*t and they are just over-charging for an alignment. So I let him do the alignment for $79. Afterwards, the car had a strong pull to the right and I went back to get him to correct it. He tried swapping the front tires... didn't help. Then he went thru the alignment process again... didn't help. So I insisted he give me a refund and he did. Now, I feel I should have trusted my BMW service advisor and am taking the car back to the dealer on Monday for the $200 alignment. I'd like some advice on this issue from those of you who may know the facts about BMW alignments.
