Hey all, I recently came into ownership of a 2005 A6, 3.2 Quattro, and am making a few minor repairs and replacing some normal parts that just wear with age. I just got all new tires installed and am pretty sure an alignment is needed based on the abnormal wear from the old tires - particularly both front tires. Also, the steering wheel is off-center when driving straight. The steering wheel is in a small, but noticeable counter clock position. My Audi dealer quoted me at $190 for an alignment, while Lexus put it at $99. My other car is a Lexus and I have real trust and familiarity with their service team from years of visits. My Lexus service rep did confirm they have the specs for my specific model/trim (18" wheel package). I'd like to confirm them with you guys, just for comfort and confidence. Anyone have the factory specs for my year/trim level? Thanks in advance

TheBlueMartin, a member here, might be able to get you factory specs. Otherwise, I think it wouldn't be too hard to call the dealership and ask them for the numbers.

Thanks for the reply, C@@kieMonsta. By chance do you see any reason why not to go with Lexus dealer on this service? Just looking for any critical feedback in case I'm overlooking something here

Tbh, I don't see any reason not to go with them if they have done a good job in the past for a lot less. Most guys here will always tell you to avoid the stealership until last resort. Same would apply in this scenario.
