M-Tech on Ponswood will do it as well, they sorted my Passat out for me after I had all the rear end apart to change some bushes, will probably only set it to standard though.

Saabtech have taken on a lot of Elvas work after they sold the recovery business to LAR but haven't managed to get their hands on the 4 wheel alignment kit, apparently it's something they want to take on in the future.

Hi all, I am booked in for Friday for a full set up, I'm sure many of you have seen what I have done to the car and wondering if above pic above by rdlandly1 is the best option or if there is a more aggressive set up that someone has a pic or info on. I will be using the car for short trips and track days.

I now have bc adjustable coilovers, camber bolts, adjustable lartel arms, anti lift kit for positive caster. Front and rear anti roll bbars and drop links.
Many thanks

Who’s doing the alignment, if they are motorsport based they should be able to help.

Otherwise the ProDrive Spec is pretty good as a fast road geo, I know I actually ran less camber at the rear on mine to allow for the dynamic camber created on acceleration.

Suttnz in Eastbourne, he asked me if I want something that's not standard and if so to email them. Over to him. So I thought I would ask if someone had any good settings for what I have changed and for track and odd driving

If you look at my previous post that was recommended by Olly Clark of RCM. If you use the above set up,
the lower set of settings will give you a good starting point..
If you go with more extreme settings you are getting into having to change for wet and dry set ups..
The above is what I've been told by experts in the past..I hope it helps..
