Wheel alignment isn't really rocket science. I honestly just usually use the Belle Tire closest to my house. They have a completely flat drive-on alignment station (good for lowered cars) and use a modern and accurate laser system. You can usually just walk in and be out within an hour too. Never had a problem there. I think it's 89 bucks for all 4 wheels.

Oh I didn't even realize Costco did alignments. Do you recall how much they charge?

I think it's done with the tire installation. If its done at all. The more I think about it the less sure I am.

Hi E46 community,

I've personally been out of an E46 for some years now but kept up with the forum during this time. A colleague and good friend (also a BMW enthusiast) is in the market for a car and an E46 4-door is on his list. Under 100k mi, kept up well by a fanatic, located in SE Michigan and priced under 8k ideally, other attributes open. Does anyone plan to sell soon, or know someone selling? We've looked on Craigslist, Autotrader and found a couple of potential candidates but the search continues...

Thank you!

I'm in Canton, commute to Livonia in a black ZHP. Does anyone know of reputable shops that can do fabrication and regular maintenance? Looking to reinforce rear subframe as insurance since I'd like to hold onto this one for a long time.

Try Intregity Services in New Hudson (Steve Henrion) if it's not too far away from you. Independent shop that does BMW only.

I just bought a 2004 ZHP, 6speed, Silver/ Black. Daily summer driver

Any independent mechanics near Ann Arbor? I'd like someone to help me look over the car to prep it for a road trip and don't want to miss anything important. Already called Steve (https://integrityservicesltd.com/) but he needs me to drop off the car overnight and that really doesn't work for me right now.
