    Stupid price from Vauxhall for 4 Wheel Alignment

    Since having my car lowered last week I still haven't had the tracking done.

    So earlier I rang my local Vauxhall maindealer, they took my details and booked me in for Tuesday, 'great' I thought.

    At the end of the call I asked how much it would be, '£70.41' I was told.

    HOW MUCH! I only paid £30 the last time I had it done at the same garage. I was then told that since the garage is no longer a masterfit the prices have gone up, as if they weren't already expensive enough.

    Well thats my rant for the day, I'll be out finding a reasonable price tomorrow.

    I don't know why or how they think they can get away with it! Any normal person would check prices else where and go for the cheapest. mental man.
    Its a jam thing

    Is it four wheel alignment or did they sell it as a geometery?

    I work for a Audi centre, we charge £120+VAT, takes approx 30mins to get all the laser alignment gear on the car and setup then go through various measurement checks and adjust as neccesary.. but very accurate.

    Would advise four good tyres are fitted when the alignment is checked.

    I paid about £60 for my 4 wheel alinemet which covers tracking and camber

    I'd be surprised for £30 if you got any more than your tracking done

    I went and will continue to go chemix in stourbridge. £38 it was all in. they got the gear set up. Went on his computer, put in what car it was, what suspension was fitted ect.

    The machine then measured the tracking and camber on the car. Then gave the operator the settings it should be at and what tollerances are allowed. adjusteded it and gave me a print out of what had been done.

    I paid £70 recently for 4 wheel laser alignment, I got plenty for money though as everything was way out of tolerance and took a lot of fiddling around getting it right again. Had before and after printouts. Took over an hour.

    Was pleased with the service I got so I was happy to pay the money.

    Exactly the same as me Jimmy

    I was around the whole time it was being done and having a good chat with the guy to. When it came to write out what he's done he left part of it off so I didn't pay so much when i went back to the office

    I was only to happy to give him a drink fro his troubles
