Results of my alignment on a new 981 - any input?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


The factory alignment on my new 2014 boxster was pulling slightly to the left.  Now after an alignment (I found out they used a older John Bean machine, instead of their new Hunter as it was tied up with another client :( ) it seems to pull to the right a bit or a slight bias to the right...


Can anyone read over the spec attached and tell me what they think... any idea why it would have a slight bias to the right... whenever I take my hands off the wheel that where is goes ever so slightly.


Would the Hunter machine made a difference?


I sound like a complete idiot when I tell the dealership this stuff, because the first time when I got the car, the sales rep said it tracks straight.. but I insisted it had a slight left bias... now after a 4 wheel alignment, the service tech says its within spec and goes straight and I feel it goes to the right...


Mind you the reflectors on the alignment machine seem hokey, every time he tried to tie up the toe, camber, the numbers would move, seems like its not a good setup...the tech told me you can't change the caster...yet somehow on the printout the caster changes from the original to the final?   but I don't know


should I ask then to check it again on the Hunter?


see attached and comment please!
