Understandable :laugh: that is a dream car for me to drive one day.

Great work though. I love the look of the grille with that extra chrome line, especially together with the Alpina bumper.

I can't really tell by the video but how is the bump steer? Does the wheel turn back to center without your guidance?

i have no bumpsteer, because i have coilovers and doesnt have to much suspension travel
it turns almost by itself, not like it was with steeringbox

Agree. Had this steering rack page up for ages. But never came around to saving the images. Now that I finaly have the time the Photocrapper strikes :evil:
