    Well, there no really a BMW wheel specialist. Any good & reputated wheel shop (Lim Tyre, Bridgestone Pro Shop) can do a fabulous wheel job. Make sure they are equiped with computerized gadgets :yes!: Lim Tyre in SS2 is good...

    Thanks tongsatriani.

    I just called up AB and they suggested I send it to Sykt Hua Hin tyre, a Michellin dealer along Jln Chan Siow Lin. According to AB they sub-contracted all wheel works to them and supports them with the correct configurations for the various BMW cars. So will check them out and see if they can do a good job and if their prices are reasonable or not.

    Hey Dude,

    Looks like you've just got your new E60! How's your ride so far? There's a few of us E60 guys that we chat with oftern, other being xcell60, boydf, and cysoon.

    Let's stay in touch and exchange notes on the car.

    Cheers!

    John,

    What have you clocked to deserve wheel alignment and balancing. The way you were zipping past the other cars after Darrens, I can see why......he..he..he. Welcome to the forum BreytonE60

    Yes, E60 has active steering. But was not aware that special tools would be needed to align the car. Anyone can confirm this?

    i go to MPS Auto in Subang. Owner is Manji Lai. FYI, I don't own an E60.
    In the shop, I've seen a lot of Porsches, BMWs, Mercs, Lambo, Ferarri so I guess they would know what to do with an E60. Can always check with them. Price-wise for alignment, balancing a bit higher but satisfaction guaranteed.
