I definitely don't miss the rattles and shakes in the E36 which the E46 refined out through fit and finish. However the E30 still has the best steering road feel and size compared to all the other three series.

Thank god they still sell Lotus Elises/Exiges that have no power steering at all (Like my AW11 MR2), they offer the best road feel.

Check out the latest Motortrend they did a comparison between the latest EPS BMW has versus their older hydraulic based steering rack.
