My rack needs replacing in my 325. Is the M3 steering quicker lock to lock than the 325's or is it the same part?

E30 325i = 3.5 turns lock to lock.
E30 M3 = 3.25 turns lock to lock.

That last 1/4 turn lock to lock is noticeable... on my 325i, I could tell that there was a difference while backing the car out of the garage after the repair.

HTH,
Eric
'89 325is
