road and race at rydelmere. the guy literally spent 50mins doing an alignment on my car - including multiple test drives to make sure it was 100%.

+1 for spinning wheel
+1 for heasmans
I've used both but spinning wheel is a bit cheaper for alignment. Heasmans if you want corner weighting as well as Spinning wheel is reluctant to do them.

I've also heard good things about road and race at rydelmere but they are a bit far away from me.

Also http://www.sydneysuspension.com.au/ if your out near penrith.

What's the rough price these places charge? Ie. would it be worth it over your standard $69 special?

around $120. for a stock standard normal car probably not. sports car that sees hard street / track use most definitely.

15 mins vs 50mins to an hr that's what you're paying for.

15mins is your AAA special, toe and go lol
Full front and rear adjustment plus road testing and steering wheel centring would take about an hour so $120 is good value if the car feels a lot better.
I haven't had much experience aligning cars but E82 is not that hard.
