Guys thought I'd get your thoughts - have an E39 2003 525 Sport Auto. Am possibly looking to change the car and get an E46 sport 2001-2004 E46 Auto convertible either 325 or 330. However before this I had an E46 320i 2000 (X) manual but as it was an SE the steering was really woolly and not that great a drive. Just wanted to know if you think it would be a step forward or back!

I think there was a revision to the steering in 2001 to the E46, when they upped the power of all the engines, if I'm right, it was quicker and slightly less turns lock to lock.

The Sport models will laos have more precise steering than an SE, but a harsher ride.

If the steering feels ropey on any E46 you test, I'd check the bushes / ball joints - I've just done the ball joints on my compact and it feels much better.
