    Looks like there might be a little play there, it might not seem much but with one and a half tons of car pushing on it in a corner i'd change it.
    It seems you have been bitten by the same bug as me!, the one that makes you spend loads of money on fancy uprated bits for your car!

    true, but up to now its only been a very small improvment!, my horror is my friend has bought a 330 m sport convertable, it has 4 x bridgestone potensers on and he start the ride is superb, no pulling or twitching!, mine should be pin sharp, but it isn't!

    I have the same problem with mine, the car seems to have a mind of it's own on uneven roads. I'm waiting for some Eibach Pro Kit springs and i'll fit them this week, then i'll get the car 4 wheel aligned. I've read the steering column has a flexi joint that wears so i think that'll be next on the shopping list if the twitchy handling isn't improved.
