It's more of a drifting sensation as I accelerate, not a hard pull. haven't noticed it before
Again, I think it has to do with the cold weather. I believe the last time you drove the car was in warm weather last year.
If you had gotten your lazy ass to the New Year's Cruise, you would have discovered it earlier.
BTW, my '15 Mustang is almost impossible to accelerate without wheel spin in the cold weather. Pirelli P Zero with a 220 UTQG.:burnout: And they don't make any tire squealing sound.

Yeah I think the subtle drift you are experience could definitely be caused by cold pavement/tires. If it continues when we arm up a bit you may want to have alignment checked. It looks like Elder's ass is drifting a little left.

Steve,
You may want to look at my thread for BDR owners for an alignment shop who specializes in BMW 's as our front ends are BMW.

yea, I was going to go there when I get new tires. dont think it's alignment issue since it rides smoothly otherwise.

Culprit seems to be embarrassingly low tire pressure. Inflated tires, took a drive and things seem ok. Amazing what a little air can do.:oops:
