Yes, suspension bits.
Investigate CAB's, steering coupler, and ball joints in that order.

Still have the 81,500 miles?
Curious to know how many miles on failed rack?
I have an '04 330Ci with 110K miles and feels solid.
Just replaced my steering coupler and made a huge difference.

You're the perfect guy to ask!

Would be fascinated to learn how you contrast the two cars. What car excels at what and which would you prefer if you could only have one?
