Yesterday I saw a 330i touring with 58000km at a used car dealer in Germany. That car is almost perfect without the heavy and self-right-turning steering wheel and red brake calipers. Is that an option, when the car is manufactured? As the information says, it is a car which from an 82 years old retired man. I really don't think he will paint the brake caliper in red. Maybe I am wrong?

Should I take that car with the price 10,990€? No other Issues.

I have never heard of a painted red caliper from the dealer options in the e46 generation. but there is no reason to think that he did not have the calipers painted just because he was 82 when traded car in... if the car is good overall and no issues go for it, not sure what prices look like in Germany but for a used wagon that were much more common in Europe that price seems a little high but it is very low mileage...

so sounds like your saying the car has heavy steering and pulls right, could be a number of issues, does it do so while driving in a straight line or only when braking? At this age given the mileage its possible suspension bits have worn out from age rather than use as mileage is still low...
Yeah, thats what I was thinking.
Pulling to one side or another is a suspension/alignment issue, not a steering wheel issue.

Straight line. Dealer says that is because of tire. I am not agree.

Tire Profile looks like V.
