1st Problem!

I've had my F30 328i since end of Feb. Today I had the 1st real problem:

Started car, steering warning alert, 'drive moderately, contact dealer warning', plus no power assist.

I looked on the garage floor for leaking fluid, then I realized it's electric assist!

Turned car off/on, steering assist returned, warning still on dash, steering feels very light and car won't let me change out of Comfort.

Booked in to dealer Monday.

Guess I am experiencing BMW reliability!

I guess you're experiencing technology in its first year of use in one of the very first examples of a brand new design. Hope it's an easy fix for you.

Do you have the variable steering option?

Hopefully it's a quick fix...
