"mentioned the "twitchy rear suspension" at the handling limit. Did this ever get "fixed?""

My '96 used to feel somewhat twitchy near the limit when it was stock. Sort of like there was a weight transfer front to rear and back. The Racing Dynamics anti-sway bars took care of that very nicely.

Also some early '96s were fitted with incorrect height springs which caused problems until they correct springs were installed.

I don't know if BMW made changes to the 1.9s handling in later years.
