Knowing you could have got it done at Bob Jane for $ 60 priceless.

Bob Jane should obtain the i3 specs (if when you take out a contract to buy your car, you subsequently own it).

I'm sure you can find out the specs.

Even if for some silly reason you cant. Perhaps while you know it's been set now (assuming they actually did anything). Take your car to BobJane or some other independent shop and get them to put it on there wheel alignment machine and print out the readings. Then next time you have reason to believe you need a wheel alignment then you have the specs.

Then again if your happy paying five times more than you should just continue to take it to BMW.

Wheel alignment huh...

Was it out from the original spec?

Generally it changes if either you hit things strong enough to bend components or suspension parts are wearing and changing geometry.

The latter is generally a warranty item.
