Been lurking here off and on for a while, and usually only post on the e39 board.

Question for you guys, I've had my 2003 M3 for over a year now, and while I have become quite attached to it for obvious reasons, one thing I still can't learn to love is the steering. It just feels too light and overboosted.

My e39 (w/R&P) in comparison feels just right, just the right weighting and seems to have overall better road feel.

Is it just me? Or, does the M3 have a lot more power steering boost than previous generations of BMW's?

Thoughts? TIA.

that the steering was a tad too boosted compared to the e36m3.

pulley's, lowering will change it up, but your observation is on par.

rack. I run the 330 zhp rack which has a lower power boost pressure and is geared faster; the same as the new M3 CS (UK) model (2.8 turns lock to lock). The power pulley wheel grees up engine power by under spinning the power steering pump -some say it increases steering effort a bit.
