Full donut space doohickey...18” rim.Looking for some thoughts on the "quickness" of the G70's steering. At 3.3 Turns to Lock, the numbers say the steering should be noticeably "slower" compared to various commpetitors with approx 2.4 Turns to Lock. This has also been picked up by a couple reviewers in articles... but not mention by the vast majority.
Any thoughts? Anyone able to compare vs BMW / Audi, etc?
--> Unrelated question, but I'll throw it in here instead of starting a 2nd thread... the 3.3 AWD Sport... is there a space-saver spare tire or "inflatable goop kit" in the trunk? Thanks...
I don't know about the comparative steering ratios but the steering is noticeably quicker than the G37x I just traded in. As far as turn-in, I don't have any issues or notice any undue delay, and am pleased with the steering overall.Having traded in a 2014 BMW 335xi with the M sport suspension and brakes, I can tell you that the steering feel and quick turn-in of the G70 are superior to the BMW, making it more fun to drive. This difference has also been noted in most of the automotive magazine test drives, and is one of the biggest advantages of the G70 over the BMW - at least the F30 chassis. The jury is out on the new BMW G20 3 series chassis.
Low speed lock to lock likely quicker than high speed given variable rackInterestingly, I found an early (2017) article by Road & Track where they quoted 3.3T Lock-lock, however there are numerous more recent (2018 & 2019) articles from other sources that claim the car has 2.3 turns for RWD and 2.4 turns for AWD. That's considerably faster! I don't know who's right, but I'd be inclined to go with the more recent numbers, since early press releases can be in error, or the manufacturer may change things before production.
