I had this on my 05 545i early this year and all the dealer needed to do is reprogram the active steering, $89.00. Not sure that will fix your problem, but mine hasn't come back yet. From what I remember they said they reprogramed the steering angle sensor.

Looks like this is a common issue in e60.
I had the same issue and had dealer perform alignment and active steering calibration and it didn't resolve the issue. Delaer wanted a new steering angle sensor for 768+taxes.
Did a diy from following steps on m5 board.
Search in google "Steering angle sensor DIY fix - it worked" and you should see the instructions. One or 2 steps I had to do differently.
