The slime won't work as well as a spare tire or a run-flat. It won't help if the sidewall is punctured and it won't work if there is a big hole in the tread area. It will work well if a nail...

@Bimmer Rules - I'm not sure if you're describing "turn-in" (the transition between forward motion and the vehicle turning as you turn the wheel). I found the turn-in slow on my 535, but thought it...

My car was a 2011 535Xi with DHP. With the 19" LS2s, I had the same observations that you do, except for the floating feeling. I'd call it numb, detached steering with little or no feedback or...

When I bought my 2011 535 the steering on the A6 I tested was terrible. It's much improved on the 2016 A6 LCI model. The 535 LCI has much improved steering compared to the 2011, but not quite up to...

FWIW Audi has the same problem. Their solution is to update the car hardware under warranty to work on 3G. They do not update to 4G which the current production uses.
