I thought the standard GTi setup only allowed simple alignment...?

Early models have adjustable front toe and camber, later models have adjustable front/ rear toe and adjustable rear camber.

Anybody now how much WiM charge at the mo for a full geometry check on the MKV?  They recommend a centre nearer me on the website, but I fancy a road trip!

....Why don't you phone them? You'll get a much more accurate up-to-date price.

IMO thats quite a lot for a basic factory setting alignment.

Yes... IMO. I take mine to TTS Roadsport and they charge £69, takes them under an hour to do.

Having said that WIM are very good, and I get my tyres fitted by them.
