Steering vibration and Dynamic Handling Package

I would like to start a little survey and try to quantify the supposed link between the steering vibration issue (*) and the Dynamic Handling Package (DHP).

It has been suggested that F30s with DHP have no steering vibrations. That somehow DHP is the "cure".

For people looking to buy an F30 this could be very important information. And people wishing to lemon law or replace their F30 will also know that they can rely on DHP to avoid that issue going forward.

(*) Issue discussed at length at http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=682580

As someone who LOVES data, you should have separated out the "No" into "No and have the DHP" and "No and no DHP."

I did this on purpose as I want to keep it simple or people just go away or click random options.

No vibration, and yes, I have DHP (or perhaps more importantly, I have variable sport steering). I would have setup the poll with 4 options, yes/no on vibration, each with yes/no on VSS.

So, to be absolutely clear, you checked that you had both VSS and the vibration, therefore we are to subtract one from that selection.

Since the Dynamic Handling Package is a US specific packaging of options, I did not select anything in the poll. In any case, I have VSS and do not have the problem.

The wording could have been better. It should have said variable sport steering, not DHP. Just pretend it really said VSS

Why is that? What makes you think that VSS is what affects the vibrations and not the active dampers? Both of these elements are collectively called DHP in the US.

Because vehicles with VSS get a different steering rack.

You realize vehicles with active suspension also get different dampers right?
