There seems to be a difference of opinion regarding the vague steering in the straight ahead position and tyre pressures. Some say an increase in tyre pressures (upwards from 33/33 psi in comfort mode) will help, but others say a reduction (downwards from 41/38 psi in eco mode) would be better. I'm trying the first way at the moment, but would be interested in members experiences with this, and whether either makes any difference. I know this is an issue with electric (as opposed to hydraulic) steering, but I find this is the only (slight) issue with the car, which I have now had for two years, and has been superb in every other respect. The steering is good in twisty country lanes, but once out on straight roads it can become quite tiresome.
