    Hi im just wondering if the 8P2 S3 has a self centering wheel ?

    Just put my steering wheel striaght as it was off slightly after tracking and now it seems to want to pull to one side, ive checked all the tyre pressures and they are fine.

    Any ideas ?

    This happened to me, so i got it laser re-aligned and balanced again after fitting bbs speedlines, that did the trick. Seems like the tyre shop didn't do a good job first time round.

    Do you mean adjusting the steering height column?
