    Has anybody done/tried this?

    I will be replacing my E46 touring steering rack in the next month or so and I'm looking for something a bit quicker.

    Or maybe an E36 M3 Evo rack???

    the z3 is a quiker rack for the e36!, its something to do with the internal ratio cog or something!
    i researched this a while back and to be honest i don't think there is a quick rack for the e46!, the compacts are a heavier rack and so are the post 2002 racks, i replaced mine with an 05 rack and it made it alot heavier! infact even the e46 m3 rack is supposed to be the same.

    Thank you for the replies!!!

    I've just bought a low mileage E46 compact M-Sport rack of ebay alongside some Febi Bilstein M-sport wishbones.
    I wanted a faster rack anyway but hopefully it goes someway to helping sort my twitchy steering out!
    I'll let you know the results when I change it all over.
