If you don't have a vibration or shimmy in steering wheel, then you probably didn't bend a wheel (that and tire damage would be my first concerns)

I don’t think any unit that is halfway decent would fail in 300 miles, unless subjected to severe abuse (Baja 1000 or similar). Factory units should be good for 5-figures of miles with normal use.

It is objectively true that the electric system transmits less road detail back through the steering wheel - you would notice it in the first 30 seconds of driving back to back. Porsche has...

My pleasure, but keep in mind that each car’s steering tuning has to work with the different suspension setups on each car. So, it’s not as easy as using the other car’s steering software (unless...
