Wait for the X3

Enjoying it more and more as I get into the swing of it. A small query to other drivers - I have read some comments about the handling/steering being a bit skittish at times and I find this too.
One thing I notice is that the steering does not strongly self-centre so the steering is a bit dead at straight ahead so the car can wander or dart a bit (particularly over a bit of broken road) This could of course be due to my tracking alignment being slightly out,
Anyone got any more helpful observations!?
