    Reputable shop for wheel alignment - Brisbane

    Hi all,

    I have a 2018 Mk7.5 Golf R.

    Recently I hit a big pot hole at high speed and bent my front left wheel really badly, not to mention ripped a massive hole in the tyre.

    I had an alignment done after the fact by a shop I won't name. I was looking closer at the read out sheet today, and after Googling around I think the "OEM specs" they used for reference seem wrong/generic. There is also a noticeable difference between the front left and front right sides even in the "after" section, which could indicate the suspension was actually damaged by the pot hole.

    I asked the shop about this and I felt like I was being fed BS. Basically I don't trust them. For my peace of mind I just want to eat the cost and get it checked by someone reputable.

    Can anyone recommend a good dealer or shop in Brisbane that does legit alignments?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
