Sorry Robg,
Just had my retrofit done. I was scared and almost backed out due to your story.

Mines perfect though. Wheel is straight and car tracks great. Awesome, truely awesome. I've sworn off the track till the M comes but I may have to make an exception.

Good to hear. Glad it worked out. I am jealous though.:p Out of curiousity what was the part number of the rack they put in-- actually I only need to know the last 3 digits...

One more favor to ask-- did they give you the alignment print out? If so, could tell me what they set the following to:
Left and right camber
Left and righ toe

Left and right camber
Left and righ toe

I'm trying to eliminate the alignment as a cause of my poor on center feel. When you're going straight down the road can you turn the wheel back and forth about 1/2 an inch without anything happening? Also, have you driven the car on any rough roads or highways where there are lots of trucks? Does it wander? And finally, do yo have the sport suspension or the regular suspension? I think part of my problems may have to do w/ all of the extremely bad roads around here-- which bring out the worst in my steering. I had the car on some nice smooth roads this past weekend and almost forgot about my steering woes. Thanks.

When did you get the factory rep to take a look? Did you just complain to your dealer to get a rep or did you deal w/ BMWNA directly?

Are you actually happy w/ the steering now after the rep "tweaked it". What sort of reliability problems are experiencing? My car (knock on wood) has been solid other than the stupid steering fiasco. PG was having his new rack installed last I heard-- haven't heard an update yet. Good luck with your 2002-- i'm sure you can't wait!
Thanks for your help 'haus. I really appreciate it. Based on what Rchoudry said, i'm also going to try and get a BMW rep to perform the magic incantations on my steering that they did on his car.
