328i Steering

Have had a 328i for a few months Experiencing a catch in the steering at times. When driving at highway speeds, we experience a hesitation or catch in steering when making slight turns (changing lanes or going through a road bend). Sometimes it feels like the car is running on a seam in the road and after a very brief time when trying to go through a turn, the steering will "break free" and go through the turn. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Odd. Sounds kind of like a delay in the power assist engaging. With the electric power assist the assist only engages when the steering wheel is turned. When going straight down the road the power assist is not engaged.

EPS shall kick in at the onset of turning steering. There shall not be delay or hesitation.

Thanks for the responses on the power assist steering. Had the car into a dealer here where they experienced the hesitation. Their response was there was an awareness of this issue and BMW was currently engaged in a software change to address it. Will post more as we are updated by dealer.
