    I assume that the front geometry on the car is fixed and not adjustable, other than very basic setup. Forigive me but coming from a GT3 where everything is adjustable - and having had it tailored to fit - I'm finding the CLK a little imprecise at speed and under hard acceleration and wondering if there might be a few issues that need sorting out.

    I did check the tyres today before going out and put around 10psi in each (!) so that has helped but I am keen to get everything spot on.

    The geometry is very much adjustable!

    You need to seek expert advice and some of the best available is from Wheels-in-Motion. I have used them on a number of occasions, especially after lowering my S203. I can highly recommend them..

    Hi,
    Is this a 208 or a 209?
    If a 208 it is adjustable for rear toe, front toe, and front camber and castor though the camber and castor adjustment is done by replacing the applicable bolt on the the lower arm with a special adjustment bolt, though the amount it can be adjusted is limited.
