i drove my 135i out of the dealership with a slightly crooked steering wheel, had to get 2 wheel alignments done to fix it. BMW still say a wheel alignment was done in pre delivery which i think is BS.

They also seem to stick better when things get spicey too, although I'll have a better idea of this after I go for a drive on the weekend. I've been holding off until the new rubber has been scrubbed in ok.

A trip to Maleny next weekend with the new gf should be enjoyable for a few more reasons now too
I might try to catch your 1er lol!

It seems to be a problem for everyone - especially the toe. It was supposed to be between 1.6 to 2.1, and mine was 2.7.

Other problems with mine was unbalanced camber and castor.. which unfortunately can't really be adjusted.
