It may be steering software related. Try getting the GTS coding done. Usually Alex Alpine or Kubax86 can code this for you. Or you can DIY

Assuming everything is mechanically sound, then a coding/software update may fix the issue.

You should find a good mechanic.

Do you have vibration under acceleration or breaking? Is it only in a certain speed or RPM range? Do you have spacers? Did you try new tires with new rims?

If you have already check all suspension and rim/tire related issues, you might wanna check your bearings. If you bearings have play, it will cause vibrations under all conditions after a certain speed.

That sounds like software. BMW fixed the issue with car pulling via software. You might wanna look into update your firmware.

Check your front hub bearings, it sounds like you have a bad front left bearing causing drag. It could be software related but this is a major safety issue, get it checked to rule out your bearing immediately.
