My Ride: is slow
Hello from Florida

Hi everybody, I'm Greg from central Florida. I just bought my first BMW yesterday and will drive it home 120 miles next Saturday. It is a 2002 steel grey 325CI coupe. The car pulled nicely. Only obvious issue was a little play in the steering (maybe FCAB's?). Is this safe at highway speed? Is there anything we should do, without garage repairs, to prepare for the 120 mile trip home?

Thanks everybody and I'm glad to be here!

Welcome. Definitely inspect FCAB's. Could also be an issue with the tires.

Check your tire pressures. The play should be fine but have it checked out.
