steering wheel feel....

Hey guys, just wondering if you guys feel that the steering wheel for the f10 doesnt feel as planted to the floor as other cars? My car does pull right but, im going to live with it until bmw comes out with a recall or a real fix for it. But, i had a 335i before and it never pulled anywhere with road camber car just goes straight. I feel like the steering wheel is really sensitive & loose on the 535i (damn EPS) they really need to fix this. I feel like the steering wheel is really responsive when i turn it left but, when i it turn right it feels really loose like its not tight on the right side... hopefully this will get resolve soon

He's not talking about the steering feel, but rather what a few others have complained about with the steeirng feeling very nervous and requiring a lot of action to keep the car going straight and narrow.

I have it too..posted under the thread steering woes...
