> -.10 front toe [AmpedRealtor]

Jerry33 means 'excessive' front toe-in. All cars need a bit of front toe-in (negative toe value). So what is the MS acceptable range? The machine will know this - anyone? Regardless, over time your car will show feathering wear on the tread if indeed the toe is mis-aligned, along with handling issues quite possibly. If there is no feathering wear then this is not an issue.

Right. I was thinking of toe-in while the car was in motion, not on the alignment rack.

Maybe the machine will know this. If it's had the correct specs put in and if it has been calibrated correctly. Also some cars like to be spot-on not just within-specs. Based on all the wear threads, I suspect the Model S is one of them. I sure wish we had the spot-on specs. Note that the spot-on specs are not always in the middle of the allowable range.
