    Try asking on https://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/forum to see if they recommend anywhere. I don't think they have enough data yet on X351 to suggest using anything other than manufacturer spec figures for geometry. Therefore, anywhere with the equipment and an operator who is reasonable (that's the hard bit - most are just "its in the green, mate") should be able to do it.

    Surprisingly, the rear camber is not adjustable on these cars

    Dumped the car in town, at my usual MOT garage. PMT (Pre Mot Tension) has set in, fingernails chewed.

    My tyre damage was all sidewall, both times. As you know, I have no issues replacing rubber that I've had my moneys' worth from, but sidewall damage on >6mm tyres is somewhat frustrating. In my circumstances, its a bit extravagant replacing the car for tyre damage, unlike Mrs DTM . I hope you remind her she is a ****** lucky woman
    She is indeed a VERY lucky woman......although it was a very slow drive to the dealership once said errant wheel had been fitted to the rear.

    Does she agree? Mrs TheBoy, herself a very lucky woman agrees Mrs DTM is a VERY lucky girl... ...but she wants a ****** Evoque, not an XE

    XJ got a years ticket, only Minor is that huge crack across the rear screen.

    The Zafira in a week or 2, when I find it...

    As a special treat for passing its MOT, I filled it back up with electricity. That should turn the airbag light back off, if not I need to get the laptop out...
