ACTIVE STEERING.. confusion

THERE IS NO ACTIVE STEERING ON THE M3...

Servotronic "varries the amount of power assist"
and does not change steering ratio...

my question makes sense for someone with active steering..
((at low speeds you have to turn the steering wheel less.. so a tighter turn takes less turn angle..

at high speeds you need to turn the steering wheel more... so a lane change aquires more angle...
--i guess the only way to descibe why is there is less "percent error"?? in your steering at high speeds.. (a slight accidental tug is not going to have as large an effect..)

so now my question.. when its off how is it set..
-1-are the high speed turns the same and low speed now requires more turn angle..
-2-are low speed turning angles the same and now high speed turning is tighter??

... i ask because if -1- is true then it is smart to keep active steering ON because it makes life easier
-if -2- is true then in performance driving i think i would want it OFF as i would rather the tight steering at higher speed... ))

..what a waste of time thinkin about that..
