A common occurrence, unfortunately. I had a friend getting tires mounted and balanced along with an alignment for his E36 M3 at a BMW dealership in Arizona. He dropped it off when the service bay opened that morning and was quoted around an hour or so before the work would be completed. 4 hours later, he called and the dealership confessed that they simply could not get the car to align. My friend demanded to go in and see the car on the rack. When he arrived, he realized that they were mounting the staggered wheels/tires incorrectly. Front tires on rear wheels, both rears on one side of the car. He pointed it out and they immediately got to work correcting the problem. Truly stunning.
