Mein Auto: 1999 M Coupe
steering rack ratio 99 m-coupe vs 01 m-coupe

i was looking at old articles in Bimmer Magazine and noticed something...

1999 M-coupe has a steering rack ratio of 17.8:1
2001 M-Coupe has a steering rack ratio of 16.3:1

anyone know if this is actually true?

Mein Auto: Z4 M Coupe 6LL93033
'99 versus '01

Parts data shows the same part number used in both.
Up to 12/97 has a different part number. The non M's have a different part number.
