Anyone know somewhere local that does this?

My car is now too low for a normal alignment check so needs to be done on one of the Hunter style machines.
These are where the lasers clip to the wheels and not where they hang over the top of the tyre.

Nearest I can find so far is STS in Bedford.
Anywhere more local to Cambridge/Ely? And anyone know of prices?

STS tyre pro's in march use the type that goes on the wheel and works for mega low cars. Also their ramps are ground level so any height car can get on them

Think I might give them a call as I was going to go to STS Wheel Alignment in Bedford but it's like an hour and 15 mins from me.
Anyone got a clue as to how much STS March charge for a 4-wheel alignment? And whether they're any good?
Or is it worth avoiding them?

30 IIRC for a check and 1 adjustment dude IE to check all settings and adjust toe which sometimes pulls castor and camber back into line anyway. But if something else is wildly out I think its 15 per adjustment but its up to you if you have it done.

They are good because the machine is pretty much idiot proof you just keep moving things till the numbers line up. In the waiting room the screen shows them working on your car, the results, settings etc so you can proof it for yourself that they have adjusted everything correctly.

Its pretty quick too.

Had 3 of my cars done there and the girlfriends low polo all drove perfect afterwards! I think you get 2 weeks satisfactory gurantee too if the wheel isnt straight etc or your not happy they will redo it.

Sounds alright to be fair. The one in Bedford wanted 50 straight up then charged for adjustments.
I rang the guy from March earlier and got booked in for tomorrow morning, and he said the current fees are 24.99 for the inital scan and adjustment and then charged for each one after that so can't really complain. The car's needed adjusting properly since the coilovers so this'll be a welcome relief.

Cheers for the advice.
