Yup. You can even see in the engine bay, the power steering fluid reservoir has been removed.

EPS can be done well, although it usually isn't. We'll have to wait for our test drives!

It looks like the ECU is now where the PS reservoir used to be?

Electric power steering can give good feedback, just look at the Mazda 3.

On one of the websites, it was mentioned that they have increased the front caster, which will increase the feedback and this is good when paired with electric power steering.

My guess is that the steering will be good... Nissan knows the 350/370 customer and knows what they want.

I will be patient and remain hopeful until the test drive, but if itís the same unit in the Q60, itís a deal breaker for me. Has to be the deadest feeling system in the world and has no place in a ďtrueĒ sports car. Just my

They spent a lot of time between their teams in Japan and Arizona tuning it. Hopefully it turns out to be pretty good.

Didn't see this vid posted yet, but he addresses the steering. It's a few minutes in. Scroll down a little to see the video.

I was considering waiting for the new Z to buy. Then timing forced my hand.

I was considering trading in my 3 month old loan for a new Z.

But that electronic steering ... well that freaks me out. Perhaps I don't understand or appreciate it yet, but I am super skeptical about it.

However that rear differential ... can I bolt that onto my 370Z? .... Please ???
