Few pictures of my 530D

Hello All,

Thought i would introduce my baby. Just got her recently. Going well so far, absolutely love it, one minor irritation is the steering and how it pulls in different directions sometimes.

Shes Carbon Black with Oyster black (brushed aluminuim) interior. She is a mid 2011 build and has most the bells and whistles apart from cameras.

Hi, congratulations on your new car. Looks great!

Regarding the steering i bet its the runflat tires. I think changing the tires to non runflats will fix the problem. Had the same problem on my F10 until i got the non RFT's.

Mine did that too (pulling) but once I lowered it and changed the wheels and tires it went away. Congrats on the car.

Thank you, thats an interesting thought. I will consider swapping to non-rft's when the tyres are due. The £££ i save on buying non rfts i can spend on a spare alloy and tyre.

Do you think it would be a major issue if the rears were non rft and fronts rft just until they run out as rears due soon.

Yes i think you will have the changing in direction until you change front tires.
