yes it is true, the steering is the biggest part of the problem with the 540, the 530 has rack & pinion & the 540 has the recirculating ball which makes it very indirect.

if you are planning on buying one, go for a later model E39 530i with M-package, save a little on gas & handles better, if you don't need the power.
