    I've noticed over the last few months that when traveling straight the steering wheel is turned slightly to the left???

    The car does not seen to pull either way and i'm sure it was not like this when i bought it over 18 months ago.

    Any ideas what this could be and any sugestions on possible fixes?

    Have you had the tracking done? Normally caused by lazy tracking people only adjusting one of the track rods at the front.

    Mine's the same BTW, but only since the tracking was done after new suspension was fitted!

    Thinking back it may well be the tracking.
    About 7 months back i had the front wishbone bushes replaced and one of the track rod adjusters. May have been this. Its only slighly off centre so for a while i thought it was just me imagining things.

    May take a trip down the local garage and see if the can sort anything out.

    Thanks
