BMW Column

The steering column on my 2005 BMW 325i gets so hot you can barely touch it. I've had it back to the dealer three times and the best they could tell me was that it was normal and that I should turn the air-conditioning on. I believe they are not investigating the fault. I have run into a brick wall, what should I do?

Take it back to the dealer and insist that they investigate it. It sounds like there could be a wiring problem in the steering column. I wouldn't continue to drive the car until the problem is found and fixed. If the dealer won't do anything, contact BMW and enlist their assistance, if all else fails go to an auto electrician.
