Z3 steering problem at low speed

I've just bought my Z3, and I have never driven a Z3 before. Even since I bought it I have been experiencing the steering is a bit iffy over uneven terrain when going low speed. It will steer out to the left or right, quite sharply, depending on the terrain.

It this normal???? Does anyone think I have a problem. My local garage have checked it out and feels all is well. He did relined the front (was 6 mm out) but its still happening. Any help would be great. Thank you

Did your garage pre-load the driver seat, passenger seat, and trunk with the correct weight when doing the alignment? Most shops are not equipped for this or know about this. My experience has been to find a shop that specializes in BMW's of go to a dealer.
