320si advice needed again lol

I've got loads of old threads on here about my steering issues. Basically i really want to keep the car as i know there is a fantastic car underneath somewhere. Some people on here have advised to sell it which is probably the most sensible thing to do lol.

The car has other issues apart from steering such as very notchy gearbox, whine from rear diff, brocken drivers seat. They can all wait as its the steering which is driving me insane!! bought it from a car supermarket which i would never do again. Horrible hostile sales tactics (car shop swindon).

Think it needs either a new rack, column or tie rods etc but no dealer or indy i've taken it too can find the problem, those horrible words 'we can't find anything wrong sir'!!. Driven a 320i msport pre lci with hydraulic steering and that was fine. Steering had no play, returned to centre, didn't pull all the time. Just what mine doesn't do! Been aligned 5 times, all didn't make any diff except once where it was great for an hour or too and then seemed to go out of alignment again.

Just after some advice really on where to take it, preferably in the west mids area but will travel anywhere to get it fixed.
