Steering Modifications?

Without a proper knowledge of car schematics... is there a way to tighten the steering? One of the chief cons mentioned by car reviewers is the fluffy steering.

Is there a way to get more responsive steering out of the wheel?

I dunno, but maybe reduce the power steering fluid? I really don't know, but it works. (A bit stupid though)

Hahaha, thats pretty hardcore

"Mods include: Aero kit, exhuast, suspension... power steering fluid drained"

But it does make sense...almost too much...

Do you have the tech package? If so, do you have your servotronic steering set to Sport?

I don't find any problems with the steering. Like all cars you just need to get used to it. After over 4k miles on the car I can't imagine wanting to change the steering.

I have 11k and its fluffy. I'm not complaining like its a problem, but if it could be improved upon that wouldn't hurt, right? There's a difference between turning the wheel of a ferrari and a lexus, I want more ferrari less lexus

Yeah, those reviewers first bashed the steering after a single drive who knows where, and after driving it back to back with the competition on tracks, they pretty much all turned around and said it is extremely precise. Whatever...

Buy a Ferrari then. I think it feels very BMW to me. I base that feeling on the fact that it feels different than any other car I've driven. Everything about the car gives it it's distinct feel which in my opinion is not like any other car company. I personally love the feel this car has while driving it.
