BllnLkeRayFelton is an unknown quantity at this point
i've had my 97 528i for a month now and i'm starting to notice the steering. when i first bought it, it needed a new ball joint and had a power steering leak. the steering is still stiffer than most other cars and i was wondering if all 528i's have a stiffer feel. Another recent problem is a sort of clicking in the steering wheel, especially when slightly turning the wheel left or right. i have no idea what this would be but thanks to anyone who can help...

Steering isn't exactly luxurious, but it shouldn't be hard either. They designed it for road feel, not super easy turning.

If the noise is a type of scratching noise in the steering wheel area, it's probably the slip ring for the airbag and horn.
