I've had the wheel alignment done, but my car is still pulling HEAVILY to the right. Correct air pressure on all 4 tires, and balancing has been done. Any ideas on what it may be? Thanks.

where did you get the alignment done? also have you checked your suspension components? like swaybar links, tie rod ends? etc etc?

bmw dealer did wheel alignment and i SUPPOSE they checked the parts you mentioned, but they said everything looks fine. They must've overlooked something. I will take it to another dealer for another opinion and bring up the stuff you mentioned.

Also, one of my rims is slightly bent (rear passenger side). Could this cause it to pull right?

if its bent slightly than it shouldnt cause a serious problem every rim is slightly bent, even brand new ones from the factory (think of how much it would cost the companies to fix and make sure each rim was perfect)
pulling to the right could be anything. if you still under warranty for the labor done than id take it back for an inspect and see what it is. they shouldnt charge you because it could be brakes again, however i would still ask if they are gonna charge you.

yeah im thinking it could be the control arm or the camber correction bolt for the front strut OR the suspension.

these links makes sense, since I also upgraded to 17" wheels, and I'm experiencing the SAME problems as these ppl....
