: After reading all of the various threads on steering problems and I am wondering if part of the prceived problem is a result of drivers switching from a front wheel drive car to rear wheel drive. For the first 18 years (1967 - 1985) of driving I drove rear wheel cars and the steering on my 328 dosn't appear to be any different that any other rear wheel drive car that I drove. FWD cars track and handle differently that RWD cars do.
: I'm not saying that there may not be a problem, just that the difference between RWD and FWD may be part of the perception.
Keep in mind that many of us are previous owners of earlier E36s, and some notice a substantial difference in steering feel or brake vibrations with the E46. In my case, I don't find the steering to be all that "floaty" (yet), but I the steering wheel does vibrate when braking moderately at higher speeds.
