    Hey folks
    I’ve just encountered a wee problem.
    I went to get my Elysion RR3 wheel alignment done today.
    The computer said no!
    Apparently each model of car has a specific wheel alignment specification and if it is not on the system it does not exist.
    Tried Kwik Fit. (I know,I know) and also Honda main dealer.
    Does anyone have the specs or know where I can obtain them?
    Thanks in advance.
    Andy

    Try e-mailing Honda in Japan.
    They have been brilliant whenever I've contacted them.

    Got my RR3 wheel alignment done at ALS Tyres in Bracknell no problem. I believe they do laser alignement.

    That’s great. Unfortunately Bracknell is a bit of a trek for me (Edinburgh).
    Everywhere is starting to use the Hunter laser alignment system now.
    Do you still have the printout with the specs?
    What I am finding is that some places will not enter different specifications into the system because it is not listed.
    My local Honda dealer said that they would contact Honda UK to get the specs.
    Things happen quite slowly up here around New Year unless you are partying!

    Guys I thought I would update you on this.
    I managed to get the car to a tyre specialist who had a hunter alignment system.
    Armed with the print out as my backup.
    Thanks so much @laurentjanot.
    Turns out that the system does have the specs you just have to look in the Jap section on the system.
    That being said these guys can do alignment on kit cars and all sorts.
    A positive result thanks for the help.
    My next port of call was Honda Japan but the whole google translate was not filling me with confidence.
    Thanks again.
    Andy

    Ps
    Now it doesn’t glide sideways round roundabouts! Which is a huge bonus in a 2 ton machine!
