i went in and booked my car in and asked the bloke how much he rekoned it would be, he said about $100. but theyre gonna rotate my tyres and tighten my rattly exhaust at the same time. Both are jobs i coulda done myself but if there gonna have it on the lift they might aswell do it. Cheers

their prices on the wall were like 45 for wheel alignment and 40 for tyre roation but i mean u think they would give me a discount for gettin both done at same time. final bill was $112 i nearly blew a gasket. they charged me 20 for fixin me exhaust. i gave them my 2 cents and said im never goin back again.
