2007 335xi steering wheel clicks at 12 o'clock position?

I recently noticed the steering wheel clicks when manuvering left to right and vice versa. There's a slight clicking sound as it passes the 12 o'clock position (or center/straight position). Aside from the slight sound, I can sort of feel it too via the steering wheel. Anybody have this? I'm just curious what is the cause of this. Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thx.

there's a couple threads on here about the problem which I also have on my 07 328xi. People have had luck getting the dealer to either replace the lower steering rack or the whole steering column. As for me, I have taken mine to 2 different dealers and they both pretended the click doesn't exist which is pissing me the F off. Next Monday I'll be sure to demonstrate it to a tech in person. Btw, you can only hear mine with the engine off while the car is parked and the steering wheel is rocked left to right in a couple inch range quickly. While driving it's hard to hear it unless you put the ear on the wheel which I don't recommend.
