agree with Pinecone on this one

1) check you tire air pressures..add some!..Low air causes greater tramling..and older tires tend to trammel as some designs with squishier sidewalls also trammel more..If shocks or struts are worn: more trammeling...Pinecone is right-on re adjustible rears...also BMW has an oe adjustible bushing set(for smaller adjustments)..if your suspension is whacked(and oh so many are) then you need new suspension parts, not adjustible bent parts, if you know what I mean..My '97 on Michelins(38f/40r), Bilsteins,Racing Dynamics frt strut(plus Z-Kane Custom SS top/bottom struts)..trammels not, Except on those really obnoxious siped roads(deep grooves) we sometimes find out here..but then not horribly..Z3Cheers! dk
