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.
