E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Power Steering

Hi all,

I know that traditionally the power steering on beemers is 'heavier' than other manufacturers - for a level of feedback, but for work I have recently been delivering brand new/nearly beemers around the country and have noticed that my cars steering is heavier (than newer ones).

This sounds like an obvious thing to say when my car is a 55 plate, and has done 100,000+ miles, but I wondered if anyone could help me remedy it.

Its not horrendous, far from it, but I just wondered if there was an easy fix?

Any help is much appreciated.

I have a 118d if that is of any use

Thanks very much
