Ok so had the car in with BMW for a free summer check. One of the findings was that they found play in the steering rack when up on the ramp. Now they said I might not have noticed it driving but suggested it should be replaced and it also requires re-programming so around €2,000 for the job.
As I am not a mechanic just wondering how urgent this is to be resolved or is it just something that if I don't notice when driving its fine? Additionally is the price quoted excessive or not?
Any other information/advice welcome. Thanks!
