powersteering retro fitted

hi guys
i have a 1986 E30 318i - this year the power steering was not factory fitted. Is it possible to have the power steering retro-fitted?
Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated
cheers

It's possible, however it really depends on how adept you are mechanicaly.

Probably possible using parts from a later model 318, but it would still be quite a project and not worth the work/money IMO. Only time you really need power steering anyway is at low speeds (parking).

Welcome to werkz.

ps. And yes, I would love to see the DIY if you actually do it.
