To cut a long story short first month was good, steering felt tight and car was planted and drove straight. Then the steering started going heavy/light and car was wandering, pulling etc. Went to five beemer specialists including main dealer. They all said those dreaded words - 'it's normal'. Been Aligned 5 times. Last one said the alignment is fine and that something is wrong and to look at parts.

For the last 8 months the steering won't return and i have to physically bring it back (so annoying and tiring!!) Rack has been sent away (fine) strut mounts checked (fine) whole of the front taken apart and checked up to uj in steering column. Can't find anything loose or worn. So leaves with me what i thought was the problem all along but was told the pump was fine and it works. Yes it works but not correctly!! lmao.

Just got a quote of 125 to fit the replacement i've bought. Wish me luck!
