The z3 is practically a bolt on application, You might need to do a little work on the firewall to make it fit. I think that this application can also be had for less money then an m3 part (Anything M3 is expensive), and you can get down to a 2.7 -3.0 Turn Lock to lock and probably a lot more responsive steering feel, you can also substitute and e36 rack I think with about the same amount of work and can probably find the parts cheaper.
I think Numark has replaced his with a z3 steering rack but I may be wrong. Let me do a little hunting I think there are some DIYs out there.
Edit: Here is a DIY I found. http://www.rmeuropean.com/bmw-steering-rack.html
, I think besides what this says it pretty much bolts right up.
Edit 2 here is a place with the parts and instructions, might be able to get the parts cheaper though, Might try Tischer BMW (our sponsor) and see what they can do for you http://www.zionsvilleautosport.com/s...egory_Code=CKS
