Wheel alignment?

Postby weirdfish » Fri Oct 17, 2014 3:56 pm

Going to get the alignment checked on the WR1, just me being anal.
Powerstation are probably closest to me, are they still the boys to go and get it done at, also, I've been reading some horror stories of people having it done at garages that don't have the right info, anyone know what it should be for standard road use.

Im not sure what standard is but mine felt well out so I took it and had a fast road setup which feels pretty amazing.

All sorted now, the guys seem to know what they're talking about.

Did indeed go to powerstation, this is the printout of the settings.
I questioned whether there was an exact set-up for the WR1, they said that they set them up from knowledge base of having done so many, and feedback from customers etc.
But if you look at the final settings, they're not far off the tech service bulletin that was posted on here a while ago.

Yes looking at yours, mine is very similar with a few slight differences.

Just out of interest how much does this cost? I'm looking at going up there to get my car remapped and serviced so might get them to have a look at the alignment too.

Without getting the invoice out I think it was about £90, if I was you I'd try and get a deal for all of it, if you're having the car mapped and serviced then be cheeky and ask for the alignment to be chucked in, or at least half price.
Let me know when you're up, might pop over and have a nose at your car, if you don't mind.

Yeah I think I will try to get it done for free, hopefully they will! I'll let you know when I'm going, it might be just before xmas now as I'm fairly busy and the car has all the bumpers off etc being deep cleaned and being put back to standard.
