Would I be correct to say that F10s driven on the left side of the road, do not experience any pull to the left or right?

Ok. Yeah.
If this is purpose made, cars they sent to the UK should pull to the left

I'd say the theory that any of BMW's cars were designed to pull to whatever side of the road you drive on is misinformation - at least as it pertains to this problem with the F10. BMW itself has admitted that this pulling issue is in fact an actual known problem - and we all know it doesn't have a fix "at this time".

Hi Guys,

I have an F10 here in Ireland we drive on the left and it pulls to the left. I have to keep some pressure using my right hand on the wheel to make the car go in a straight line. I have 328 V spoke alloys and 245s from BMW and the problem is still evident and it is getting to be an annoying problem.

Guys I have a 2008 BMW 335i coupe and my car has a slight pull to the right as well. It is more noticable with cars with the sports suspension. I had a loaner E90 328i a few days ago with the 17" value package rims but it did not have sports suspension. The loaner had lighter steering and seemed to track more straight and true. after driving it for a few days I noticed that it did also indead pull to the right just not as noticable since the car sits higher of the ground. Here in Orlando, Florida we have a lot of roads that have been built with a slight crown for the rain to run of the road faster. This is the price we pay for our cars to handle better than the average car. Most BMW's I have driven pull to the right except for some X5's but those sit high of the ground and built different than a BMW sedan and especially a BMW coupe that is so low to the ground.

I'm afraid the pull on the F10s aren't really slight - they're pretty much violent in comparison. (Ok, I may be a bit over the top on that - but those who have driven the F10 at 80+ mph know what I mean...)

If I can figure out how to do it, I will try to post a video to show everyone how sharp the pull is. When I'm on the highway, and I let my hands off the steering wheel...I will be in the lane next to me within seconds.

Amen Mojoe. I might get someone to go with me to shoot one as well while I drive. I can be over in the 5th lane in no time flat.

I think this is exacerbated by the light(er) steering and lack of on-center feel on the F10.

Then why is it that some F10s pull to one side and others don't? And it appears more of the F10s driven on the right side of the road pulls to one side?

Here's video from my European delivery a couple of weeks ago. My speedometer was broken, which is the first part of the video, but at 17 seconds there's video of the car pulling to the right. I've given this video to BMW NA, mainly so they'll fix these issues at port when it returns.

My 335i E92 Does the exact same thing! I had new tires put on, many alignments done, and suspension checked by the dealership and everything checks out fine.

I know the owner of a 320d for nearly 10 years old who also pulls to the right, is amazing.

The PUMA case #s are assigned to each individual case. Your dealer will give you your number when they initiate your PUMA case.

Wow... that's terrible ! Thanks for the video.

I'll keep an eye when I get my car in about 5 days.

Does every early car of the new generation of the car should hv so many problems like this when it first come out, or it just wrong?? (Pullin to the side problem + Speedometer + Gearbox)

I do very really love how this car looks from inside-out. Also, after lookin' at many reviews abut this F10, it sounds very convincing to me, and sounds like a very good car, indeed.

Me and my dad was so ready for it, and was then only waitin for it to officially landed in Thailand so then we can hv a little test drive to make up my mind easier.

BUT THEN,,,,

I see all of the posts abut all of the problems abut the new F10 here, which kindda afraid me off. So, right now, me and my dad kindda wanna wait for a another year b4 realli goin to purchase this gorgeous lookin car.

However, i jus realli wonder that Does every early car of the new generation of the car should hv so many problems like this when it first come out, or it just wrong?? Is it usual?!

In addition, my E90 also pull very sightly to the left, and only b noticeable after driving at 80 kmph or more. (All the tires are carefully checked)

P.S. Sorry for my poor English, and really hope all of the problems will be fixed asap. Love
