M Performance Suspension Pulls Right

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Reaching out to all of you with M Performance Suspension installed by BMW dealer - I would like to know if any of you have noticed that the car now pulls to the right and is more noticeable at higher speeds.

Took it in for alignment a few weeks after suspension install and everything checked out according to dealer. According to BMW, the car follows the road crown and is considered normal. Not convinced, I took it to independent suspension shop and they verified the alignment is within spec.

I know it is not radial pull since the issue started as soon as the suspension was installed and I've switched wheels/tires since and the issue continues.

Anyone else noticing this? I vaguely remember seeing a post on this topic, but a search has not produced any results.

My car is a 2013 335i M-Sport 6MT with M Performance Suspension

Thanks!

I had the same thing after m perf suspension. Had tire pressure checked (at American tires, not gas station) and I don't see the issue anymore.

Jump on a 3 lane highway, get into the middle lane and if it pulls right take it back to the dealer and have them try the same test.

On a two lane road, you're always going to get a bit of right pull but the middle lane of a recent highway should have relatively flat grade.

What tires and tire pressure and tires are you running?
I don't have this issue up to 128-130mph (on a track).
