At the risk of sounding extremely pedantic there are some models missing.

No US-spec E36 M3s are mentioned at all.

So its missing:

1995 E36 M3 3.0l (USA)
1996-1999 E36 M3 3.2l (USA)

Not to mention the different body style variants of those models as well as the LTW edition

This document is incorrect. It has Rack and Pinion Steering for all models from the E30 to the E92 with all having a ratio of 19.6:1.

The E9x appears correct at 12.5:1, whoever made this up just flubbed the GTS (and everything other than the normal E9x)

Neat, but this doesn't look like an official BMW document, they're usually a bit more polished?

E30 models didn't have Rack and Pinion. They had Recirculating Ball steering.

Too many inaccuracies, and too many models missing - at least to be a "complete" resource
