are bimmer's noticeably sensitive to tyre pressure changes?

steering on mine's started pulling ever so slightly and a quick tyre pressure check shows like a 1psi difference in the front - but can't imagine that small a difference making any impact?

cba if it needs the wheels realigning - potential blag on a 2 month old motor? fucking potholes.

Their reputation for ridiculous longevity was lost under GM ownership but I wouldn't say they are any more or less reliable than the equivalent Vauxhall/Ford/VW as long as it has been maintained.

There are major Saab bargains to be had since the marque went under. People get nervous about owning something that's defunct but parts will be plentiful for years to come.

Put my A3 into Audi this morning, Engine management light on and stop start system fault showing - felt really sluggish aswell, wouldn't get the revs up. Hopefully all under warranty if anything bad!

Whilst i was there, said there were 300 15' plate cars going out this week, oil crash? what oil crash?
