just want to know what people think of the vibration through the steering when wandering over white lines. compared to other models i find it very faint. sometimes not noticing it on rough roads.

Not certain but believe it can be adjusted in the menu, may be wrong.

Ive looked everywhere In the book etc. When I mentioned it when the car went in for some snags to be rectified all the dealer did was to reset it. I think it is what it is.

Agree with OP comments, the Lane keeping warning vibration of the steering wheel is rather ..er subtle. OK on highways (smooth, good quality asphalt) , but on "b" grade roads with constant suspension movement it is almost undetectable.
I am not aware of any adjustments to the strength of the wheel vibration, on the system menus. (well, not owner accessible...perhaps a Dealer could adjust)

Via the system menus, you can adjust the behaviour pattern of the warning vibes though.

Below quoted from a USA version of the operators manual in PDF format, that I acquired:

Standard
When Standard is selected, no warning vibration occurs if:
- you switch on the turn signals. In this event, the warnings are suppressed for a certain period of time.
- a driving safety system intervenes, such as ABS, BAS or ESP®.

Adaptive
When Adaptive is selected, no warning vibration occurs if:
- you switch on the turn signals. In this event, the warnings are suppressed for a certain period of time.
- a driving safety system intervenes, e.g.ABS, BAS or ESP®.
- you accelerate hard, e.g. kickdown.
- you brake hard.
- you steer actively, e.g. swerve to avoid an obstacle or change lanes quickly.
- you cut the corner on a sharp bend.
