Off-Topic : Alan, your post count reads 666
Sean, you & I have been in the same boat since day one. The only difference is I usually get to the point where I start to accept the faults of our cars.Sean said:Alan,
That 2002 330i loaner has messed you up. :yikes:
I know how it is, I've been there when I've had a 330 loaner.
Rob this is the theory that goes around these boards but when I spoke to BMWNA one of the managers who knew his BMW's very well never heard of this before.robg said:Alan-
That lower on the right thing could actually be viewed as a very subtle feature-
it balances out the driver's weight on the left side and makes the car perfectly even w/ a driver.
That's pretty cool if that's actually the intent-- and I think it probably is. Although its strange that only 9 out 10 cars would be this way-- if its an intentional feature they should all be this way.
Its probably due to the battery being located on the right side.
You crack head! =)Alan F said:I just got back from a quick drive in my brothers A4 and I noticed his car is similiar except his car feels a little easier turning left then turning right where my car is the opposite.
Just so you guys understand this is coming from the most analist of tests and if you are not specifically driving around slowly and trying to feel every little bit of your steering you will never notice it.
Also, this morning I tested my car and found it to be very even so I am putting this problem to rest.
If anyone has anything to add except the recommendation that I seek therapy then please throw your 2 cents in

I went out and tested my car for some other things...I noticed that if you put it in reverse and turn the wheel all the way to lock and do reverse donuts in the parking lot that 1) you get dizzy 2) security will come out and stop you and 3) steering feels the same tightness no matter which way I do itAlan F said:Why don't you guys go out and test your steering for me and let me know if your car does the same though the 2002's are muich tighter steering so some of you might not notice it.

Oh...and my left turn signal blinks faster between 7 and 9 mph while in reverse...I think Iwill post that on the Mercedes board and see if they have the same problem? :dunno:
