You should replace your tie-rod ends (or ball joints as they are sometimes called). I had a similar problem a while back and replacing them solved the problem. The part number is 32 11 1 126 757. If that doesn't do the trick, there are three things left - sloppy shocks, worn bearings and worn rack. However, these are all pretty costly to replace, so try the tie-rods first. It is a fairly easy DIY job, but make sure that you get your geometry checked afterwards.

Happy ///M3ing!
