Subject: [E36M3] <e36 M3> pulls to the right
Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2000 21:13:48 -0800

Back in July 99 when I picked up my new e36 M3 (1999) I noticed the car pulled to the right and after posting to the Digest, I learned a few others had a similar problem. It took a few trips to the dealer (who was great trying to fix it) until the finally solved the problem. I never did find out what they did, but I assumed they kept tweaking the alignment.

Well, yesterday (5 months later), I get a call from the service manager saying that they modified a bolt to finally get the car to track straight. Since then, he said BMW had developed a "solution" (a new bolt?) and they want to swap out the locally fabricated part for the BMW part. He also said they need to do it ASAP. They will also do another alignment.

First, if this is a solution to the problem, I will let you know the part number. I am a bit skeptical however and think they want to avoid any potential liability from modifying the stock parts. Has anyone heard of a "new" repair kit for this problem or will I end up with the original stock parts? I guess if the car pulls to the right again, I'll have my answer.

I'll keep you posted.
