in citroen cars they have a simialar if not the same system that does the brakes, suspension all round and the power steering, when I had this problem it sometimes was low fluid or even the accumalater(spelling?) was bad , a tell tale sign
was the pressure relief valve clicking frequency
every 2 to 5 seconds ment that the accumalater was bad.I don't know if this system has a pressure relief valve, I pressume it does as the primary job of the accumalater is to hold pressure it the system and smooth out the pulses from the hydraulic pump, and to take off the hard work of the pump always suppling high pressure. Its a shame that BMW didn't go one step further with the self leveling suspension and fit the activa system from the Xantia with its active anti roll in corners now thats what I would call a well handling 7, nice smooth ride with the ability to out corner some of the sports car today, not that it doesn't do it already:)
