The following steering systems are fitted in E82 vehicles:

that's the electric steering that is why the reservoir looks different.

Happy to contribute!

Seeing that the 128 has rack and pinion steering, I may not go for active steering afterall....

Thanks.

Rook - check this out re active steering. Personally I don't want it, but it's better to know what it does before you make a decision one way or the other: http://www.usautoparts.net/bmw/technology/afs.htm

Sorry for drifting a bit off topic (where's that active steering when you need it ; -).

Looking at the diagrams for the E90 and E87(www.realoem.com/bmw) it looks like the different reservoir indicates Active steering, not electric steering. The standard hydraulic has a star shaped cap on the reservoir, While the active steering has a flat round cap.

Also, servotronic only refers to variable assist, not to weather the steering is electric/hydraulic/mechanical

Great post, j8smith! Funny that I snoop around RealOEM all the time, and didn't pick that up.

This document states that the front end of the E82 is identical with the E90. Does this mean you stuff the S65, a 4.0 L V8 engine in the 1 Coupe?

What kind of a beast would this be?

you can!! Google Hartge H1 V8. They used the prev. gen M5 motor in the e87 hatch. I doubt it will be a bolt in though

Did anyone else notice the exhaust on page 7 looks different with only one pipe from the engine bay rather than the recent dual pipes from this post. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4284

I wonder if that is an old pic and they changed it to two recently.

Yup - but mikeo also noticed that that car has foglamps which may mean it's a 128i.

"The feature will also be introduced on BMW 3 Series models with higher performance engines at a later date."

Does this mean new engines coming for 3 series (aside from normal updating)? Or just that the present 335 will get this feature?
