Just got off the phone with my service writer over at Vista BMW in Coconut Creek Fl. I brought my '11, 535i in to be aligned....not for any steering issues but because I clipped a wheel the other day. Had the wheel fixed too.

He called me to let me know that BMW is aligning 5's for free right now and to tell me that they have the software fix for the right pull problem.

Story goes that there was a 5 buy back on their lot that ended up being the mule for this software fix. The engineers used this car to tune the software. The fix is two pronged...software and mechanical. I suppose it might have been taken care of at Vista because it's the largest BMW dealer in the US

I specifically asked if the fix is widely available and Dino told me that it was. So, if you're drifting call your dealer. I hope it works.
