I have a 2000 323Ci. When its warm out (above 75) there is a groaning noise when wheels are turned. Worst when car is not moving. Once moving it isnt very noticable. Also when cool out it isnt there. I checked the power steering fluid and it seems full. Any ideas?

i had this exact problem. I took it to the dealer and i was told it was a cracked control arm bushing. Since it was under warranty, it cost me nothing.
