    Not yet Gab, the track car is parked up under cover at work at the moment as I haven't had a second to do anything other than breathe and work!

    Let us know if you do it, I'm curious to hear second opinions. Seem to good to be true. I don't know about the M3 steering, but the rest of the E36's are absolutely rubbish IMO (steering wise). I would really like to do something about, if it doesn't require losing an arm and a leg.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    same, i find the steering on my 328 appauling, and whilst at the ring, the occaisional flap at the steering wheel to correct the arse end, i want a much shorter lock to lock , a faster rack all in all.

    Will do mate, the car is going to be going in for some head work and a carbon airbox as well in the not to distant future.

    There is a thread but I've not done anything to it of late so no updates yet Gab.

    sorry to dig up an old thread but if you buy an e46 rack complete with inner and outer tie rods.is it a straight fit or do you need to use the e36 ones?
    thanks in advance
