MANY main stealers completely fook up geometry settings . . .

IMVHO, you should never let a stealer loose on alignments.  I had my previous S4 done by an official Audi garage (Huntingdon Audi), and they messed it up so badly I had two monster blowouts at three figure speeds on the Autoroute in the south of France!  Thankfully Michelin France came to my rescue . . .
