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.
Me neither, I only miss my E36 if I'm on a really smooth road, which isn't often.

I drove a rental Toyota Yaris with no power steering in Curacao. That was kind of exciting, trying to keep it on the road amongst the rolling hills.
