My new M3 ....

So, I got a 4 wheel complimentary alignment done because the steering wheel was slightly off center but just a few degrees. Now, the car's wheel is more dead straight but it feels harder to turn the wheel. WTH happened here? Does anyone have any good advice? I only have 1256 miles...

Congrats!

As far as the steering wheel, I'd take it back to the dealer you got it from and have them take a look at it! Hope everything gets sorted out!

You might try driving another M3 at the dealer to compare the steering feel to yours.

Forget the sterring, I'd be more interested in the massive car park behind you :-) perfect for learning all about your car on a frosty moring!

Get the alignment specs (sheet) from the dealer, if you can. There are people here on the forums who can tell if anything looks fishy.

I miss my ZCP wheels soooo bad. Can't wait until winter ends so I can get them back on!!! Nice car op! And I wouldn't worry much about the steering wheel being harder to turn, probably in your head or the result of fixing some bad toe.

Unless it's something silly like the servotronic mode getting switched without you realizing it... sounds like they may have changed the caster.
