Steering wheel vibration

Has anyone here in Australia that has taken delivery of their F30 experienced any of the vibrations that the Americans seem to be posting so much about?
Was even thinking of test driving the car before paying for it. I didn't notice any vibrations on the test drives.

I believe it's only an issue for those who drive on the wrong side of the road. I haven't heard of one RHD F30 having this issue.

No that's good news. They know what the problem is now and can fix it for those affected.

Almost seems as thought it's an issue with the plant that supplies to the US?
