I agree with Brad. The 323 and 328 that I drove were very sensitive. Although at 100mph I did not feel that I was about to lose control at all. It just seems the steering is very sensitive - if you move the steering wheel 1/4" the car moves in that direction. I thought this was the nature of a refined 'sport' sedan?

: The "play" on straightaways at speeds greater than about 70 mph gets greater and greater as you go faster. At 90 mph it's too much to stay in control.

: Does anyone else have this problem?

: The e36 loaner I had didn't have this problem at all at high speeds.
