He did mine and it made a lot of difference to the feel of the car. What he doesn't know isn't worth knowing...

how much do they charge and did they do more than just wheel alignment ?

Do you have the readings from the print out of the alignment. With those we may be able to give you an opinion.

Just my 2 cents...

I wouldn't go to a dealer, because they only setup on data from the fabric. 'Green zone is good' doesn't work on a 159.

I have mine aligned by a specialist store who does training/aligning of the whole vehicle (after a crash) and they told me that you have to think beyond the 'green zones' you get by e.g. Kwikfit.

My 159 is aligned and steers just right (with a right steer), with the driver in the vehicle (parameters change, and why is the car aligned with nobody in it, while you are always in the car while driving). No bad tire wear, just a clean car.

I have used the parameters from AO. It was a little difficult calculating them to dutch measurements :-)
