Hi, just got my 156 back from 40k 'short' service. Just oil and filters, I had thought.
But there's always something...
On the invoice 'advisories' the garage have made the recommendation to have the steering geometry reset to factory measurements.
The car has never been in any accident damage, so why the need?
I was given this technician's comment "pulls to the left - currently set at +3.00mm, should be set at +1.00mm". Cost to remedy £35.
Is this worth having done?
I always put down a tendency to pull to the left as classic 'torque steer' evident in all 'torque-y' fwd cars.
However, I was told today that due to the prevelance in the UK of speed humps, potholes and generally crappy road surfaces, the steering geometry gets knocked out of whack and needs resetting.
Is this another garage add-on 'extra' to bump up the cost of a service, or a genuine 'needs-to-be-done' item?
