[DML] Re: I found a new rattle noise - Steering column U joint?

Not to mention E30 series has power steering so the whole setup is really not comparable.

So go ahead and put it on your own car but don't come on this list and tell everyone our steering sucks and Lotus should be ashamed.  Steering is one of the car's most simple and well-executed features.  You don't see owners with well-maintained steering complaining about excessive vibrations or poor road feel because that problem just doesn't exist in the DeLorean. 

I'll even quote your idiotic statement for posterity.

" My DeLoreans are the only cars in my stable without
flexible couplings -- yet another Lotus design flaw IMHO."
