Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, in the county of Midlothian, with an estimated population of 488,000.

It is the 2nd biggest city in Scotland (by population) and the 7th in the UK.

Most famous for Edinburgh Castle and the famous Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe, that celebrates the performing arts, theatre and comedy over a 3-week duration in August.

Another great attraction for Scottish tourism is the annual Edinburgh Hogmanay celebration. Originally an informal street party on the Tron Kirk in the Old Town’s High Street, it now covers 4 days of processions, concerts and fireworks, with the street party beginning on Hogmanay.

Edinburgh has 3 football teams that play in the Scottish Professional Football League: Heart of Midlothian, Hibernian and Edinburgh City. In women’s football, Hibs and Spartans play in the SWPL 1.

The most popular cars in Edinburgh

Given their multipurpose appeal as a family car and sensible commuter vehicle, it’s no great surprise to learn that the VW Golf is estimated to be the most popular car in Edinburgh, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.

What is a front wheel alignment?

Wheel Alignment (or tracking) is the adjustment of a vehicle’s suspension – the system that connects a vehicle to its wheels. Wheel alignment is adjusting the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road.

How often should you do a front wheel alignment?

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.

What happens when we do a front wheel alignment on your car?

Our certified mechanics will: Laser alignment system Align front tyres (as required) Adjust the rear axle (if needed) Camber/Castor adjustment (if needed)

What are the symptoms of common wheel alignment problems?

Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Keep an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be a sign of incorrect alignment.
