Today I had a four wheel alignment carried out .Price was £76 which I thought was very reasonable as the guy doing the work spent over an hour getting the geometry within manufacturers specifications. :thumbsup:

I have only done about 8 miles since it was adjusted ,so hard to tell.Tomorrow I will be doing over 150 miles so should be able to give a more informed answer.
Below is the before and after results

Assume red is out of tolerance? Looks good. It's hard to find somewhere where they actually know how to do these alignments properly so be interested to know if it feels better after your 150 miler

I have now driven over 400 miles since the alignment was corrected. I was not unhappy how the z4 drove before,the reason for the geometry check was I had new Michelin pilot sports fitted and wanted to get the best out of them.
The car now feels planted when cornering and you can steer with very little effort.Money well spent as it's joy to drive.
