Update on the crappy steering issue - should have known better. Have been to check tyre pressures, front offside was down at 12psi - way to go BMW, who not only should have checked but also fitted four new tyres before delivery?!?!
Suffice to say it steers true and good now, much less slop in it and in a straight line with the wheel straight. Still groans when dry steering, though!
DRIVING DAILY: F20 120d Sport, many toys
AND AT THE WEEKEND: 2006 Alpina Roadster S (because petrol is best)
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: 125i SE, jet black, 142s, cruise. No other fancy toys, except the straight six under the hood!!
