I have the same. Dealer has changed the two front struts but no effect. 😳

Although this is the same dealer that told me that my i3 needs the pressure of the engine to run the aircon 🤦🏻‍♂️

Hello gentlemen.
I'm sorry I don't speak English well.

BMW equips cars with defective wheel bearings at the factory so that BMW can obtain post-warranty service. The same is the rubber cover of the front shock absorber, service life max. 3.5 years.

I was in Germany with a friend to buy a BMW i3, most cars have free (play in) front wheels, some noticeable only in the hand, others noticeable by sound, others with an ominous metallic sound at 42,000 km.

The right wheel sways more because it is more loaded at the roundabout.

I don't like the behavior of the manufacturer who made the timed defect on the car.
I also had these defects, a bearing and a protective cover for the front axle shock absorber. After 1/4 year of speculation at the German BMW office, they repaired everything for me half a year after the warranty free of charge.
Another timed defect is opening the REX tank, depressurization.
I said that the car does not pass the state technical inspection in the Czech Republic. BMW fixed everything.

I expect more timed defects on my car.
