I just got my rotors shaved and they feel perfectly smooth when I brake, but I still have a problem with the wheel. It always feels like it's pulling a certain way and I hav eto correct it. I have a 325i with low profile tires, 95'. And when I turn off my radio and listen carefully and turn the wheel fast back and forth why I am standing still I hear and feel a cable pullling behind the steering column. Does anyone know how to fix this?

really? I thought wheel alignment was just for shaking. I hope it works. How much do wheel alignments usually run?

Ok, now that just leaves the sunroof rattle left. I found a guide for an e30 sunroof rattle but I highly doubt it's the same. I tried taking the liner off to screw in the loose screws but it didn't seem to fit his guide. Anyone know how to fix this?
