Standard.  They normally find 'problems' amounting to £300-400.  Just ignore them.

To be fair, they were probably talking about the discs in his spine.

Jax Tyres where I go has a Hunter alignment setup.

Has anybody had their car come back where all the numbers are in the green?

There are two reasons that I ask.

1) When I park the car after moving in a straight line, you can visually tell that both tyres are toe out. Even my daughter said this.

2) I don't get the characteristic 'anti-Ackerman chirp' when on full lock and reversing.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

For forum issues, please contact one of the Moderators. (I'm not one of the elves anymore, but I'll leave the link here)

In my experience subtle variances in angle are hard to accurately gauge by eye, are you using a straight-edge on the rim/sidewall as a pointer relative to bodyshell?  Wasn't it Rolls-Royce who formed vertical grill elements slightly bowed wide in order to compensate for the eyes' tendency to see grouped, straight verticals as pinched inward? Took notes from the ancients' work in columns as I have read.

Re: toe-in specifically please tell us how the car drives, if you would. It seems that Lotus shifted from conventional toe-in to toe-out over the development of the car.

Cheers
