Changing the pump hasn't changed a thing. So yesterday i went and test drove another si which had the oem run flats on. I took mine off and replaced with Falken FK452. Although it had much better steering return than mine, it still had that loose steering feel, i guess what i mean is it didn't feel tight (no centre feel).

I guess the oem rfts didn't help causing a bit of tramlining BUT i'm coming to the conclusion that please don't hurt me lol that beemers are a little overrated?? My last car was a mk5 golf and that had so much better steering than these two cars. It wasn't even a gti!! you could throw it into a bend very quickly with just slight adjustment. These cars feel positively twitchy in comparison. I know its fwd so going to feel different but my mother used to have a uk spec twin turbo supra which had fatter tyres than my si and that ran straight and true, no tramlining, no loose feeling etc etc.

Sorry for this long rant but i'm really tired now, tried to cure my car for the last two years and it turns out that's the way they drive like every beemer specialist has told me lmao!! If their's anyone who can tell me i'm talking b****x please tell me
