My VSS steering has developed a light clunk turning the steering wheel left and right, and it's very noticeable when maneuvering around a parking lot.
It feels like something is loose and it sucks.
Doesn't feel very BMW like.

I wonder if the new 7/2013 rack is to fix the whole lack of steering feel and light effort that so many are bitching about, and why the new ATS gets so much praise.

If BMW puts in a better feeling steering rack next summer, then I want that new rack. My car will be nearly a year old at that time, and I'm gonna be pissed if BMW fixes the steering and doesn't retro for the cars already sold. It's not like my steering rack has been perfect since new, I've told my dealer about thunking sounds since the day I picked my 335i up.
