AFAIK there was a 1.8 in the USA but in the UK the 1.9 M43 was actually badged (on the boot) as 1.8, it was on our first Z3 and caused some initial confusion with the insurers.

Hi and welcome.

There is a fix for sticking steering that (if remember correctly) involves carefully drilling into the steering column where there is a joint and squirting in a light machine oil. I'm almost certain that I got it from Z4-Forum.com.
