I had a hair raising moment the other day, going right unto a
roundabout I took the sharp exit left and all of a sudden the car was
on skates. left, right, left again. Lucky for me the oncoming driver
stopped, but the look on his face said it all..Following that, I'm
doing about 70 on but then the road feel abit uneven and suddenly I
feel the back starting to feel like its about to fly i.e. like it was
losing traction. So I slowed down.
This is a bit frustrating as my previous car could easily maintain 70
without me worrying that its about to spin out of control.
Any one know what could be causing this problem, i.e. suspension,
tyres, system fault etc.
I've got low profile 235,R18' tyres so I would have thought that it
would hold even in the wet conditions alas I was wrong. I've read that
the BMW's are quite tail happy but I would have expected that at speeds
like maybe 90mph not 70mph. Please help, I didn't get any lights ABS,
ASC etc I don't know how to test these, I know I ASC light works as I
can turn it on or off, I might just go down to the stealers but I would
rather have an idea of what it was dirst....
I would say the problem I've noticed seems to happen if I'm at speed
and over uneven surfaces, as the car rocks a bit, I start to feel like
its loosin its hold. HELP.
