Do the alignment yourself. The most sophisticated tool you need is a Tape Measure. The only possible adjustment on BMW's are toe-in and toe-out. Set the toe-in (with vehicle on ground) to about 3/16". Basically, you measure the difference between the front of the tires and compare that to the measurement between the back of the tires. Really, do not waste time and money with "professional" alignments and fancy machines.

I how much should I expect to pay to have a front wheel alignment done on a 1988 BMW 750iL? (California)

Thanks Rich
