Sterring sticks and releases causing overcorrection on 2004 BMW Z4

When al speeds, all road conditions, Installed new tires and that did not help, could it be the "electronic steering assist" has or is going out? Yes I checked the lock on the steering colum and moved it inward with no improvement..

i took my 2004 bmw back to dealer at around 55,000 for the same thing. I was a month out of warranty but they "replaced it as a favor to me." Would have cost $500.

If it only happens in temps above 80 degrees it might be a fairly common issue that required the entire steering column to be replaced. The NHSTA is currently reviewing the issue so if we are lucky they will force BMW to fix the dangerous problem under a recall.
