did /M put recirculating ball steering in the M5 because thats the only way the engine would fit? any other reasons?


For better or worse, BMW has always put recirculating ball steering boxes in it's bigger cars. Only the 3's have ever gotten rack and pinion. Perhaps the engineers feel that the recirc. ball design works better with a bigger car.
