: It seems like some people are having regrets about purchasing E46 due to the steering problem now. I am planning to buy Y2K 323i and do you guys think that this problem will be fixed by then??? should I even buy E46??? I am sooo confused now!!! some thoughts will be appreciated.
: : : :A A4 really looks good right now. My dealer has made 4 attempts to fix the problem. And while it is slighty better the problem is still there.
: : This dealer is A+ and I wouldn't consider going to any other dealership. They have been working hard with BMW tech support to resolve the problem and I doubt if any other dealership would do as much.
Well, I guess you have to decide for yourself. This steering problem is really annoying to me, but I still loved the car. When the steering problem didn't occur(at lower speed), the car drives liked a dream. I really disagree about the tire size and pressure, rim size and etc being the source of the problem at all. I don't think BMW or any car manufacturer would spend all their time to design their cars in the best way would possibly be so messed up by this one component. All cars I have driven don't have this problem no matter how cheap the tires are.
