I just had my 2002 530i into the dealer for an Inspection I. I have just over 25,000 miles on the car. I noticed some uneven tire wear on the fronts (driver's side wearing faster than the passenger side) and asked them to check it out, but not to do any alignment work unless it was necessary as the car tracks straight and true.
When I got the car back, they said that the alignment was fine and that they hadn't touched the alignment (evidenced by no charge to me).
When I drove home, however, the steering felt wrong. It was tracking staight enough, but it suddenly was following ruts in the road, and when I went through the occasional bump or small pot hole the steering wheel would turn in my hands. The car seems more effected by wind as well. It just feels less sure-footed and more "squirrely".
I have a service appointment on Wednesday and need your help! Any thoughts from the forum?
