I know exactly what you mean but I'd been having issues where the voltage dropped so low at low speed that the power assistance for the steering would pretty much stop, requiring extra rpm not to nearly stall some days. Way over the usual dimming lights when the wheels were turned, these have now improved significantly, lights still dim but the steering maintains a constant weight and you don't need to raise the revs articially anymore.

If it returns I'll break out the battery tester but it's currently seeming happy enough.
