Filled 32ps on all 4 wheels, ride I feel is smother than earlier. BTW I am always getting mileage less (around 1 km) than what is shown by the on-board computer, is this normal?

I'm pretty sure that the difference of 1 kmpl is well within range of acceptability. My ANHC is generally off by about 1.5 KMPL i.e. MID shows 15.5 kmpl when actually calculations show 14 kmpl.

Agree that an offset of 1 to 1.5 kms is acceptable limit, but if all are having this issue, why donít BM change the calibration accordingly OR do they want us to have the feeling of having a higher FE

Madhus has a jaynagar branch or drop into Langford road branch. They will be your best option.

At the risk of sounding stupid, Is wheel alignment different for a BMW? 7k for wheel alignment is daylight robbery even for BMW.

Would suggest you go to the Langford road showroom since you see more high end cars there. Jaynagar may not be as proficient as the Langford road ones.

Also, I believe Langford road has the first road force balancing machine to wheel balancing.

Langford road showroom is just below the Richmond road flyover when you go towards Double road on the left side. You can't miss it.

I would suggest you head to Madhus on Langford road. They are your best bet.Cost will be 250 bucks for alignment.Service is top notch.Also you can try out their new Road force balancer machine to get your wheels balanced. I am sure Alignment+Balancing wont cost you more than 1000 bucks including weights!

Yes, it is.. That's why I am looking for alternate option. You know, even with these rates, Navanet motors have a 2 week waiting list for allignment

Beautiful car! Congrats! I love that red color. Safe and happy motoring!

If you don't mind, would you be able to tell me the On Road Price that you paid and break-up (ex-showroom, discounts, tax etc.) if possible?
