    The only thing I could think of is that it's to do with the variable power assistance. The one with the sensor is about 100 quid cheaper than the one without which makes me think that the cheaper one is the more common one.

    Think one with sensor is for non esp models and without sensor is for esp models, according to this anyway [url]http://outcat-cs.tecdoc.net/ows/en/3ED51E894F71B3AAE2B893FA36B5652D.ows_cs1.srv;jsess ionid=3ED51E894F71B3AAE2B893FA36B5652D.ows_cs1?vie w=VIndexFramesetJsp

    There's an angle sensor on mine which feeds back into the system, probably some sort of steering pump control. HTH

    Mine doesn't have ESP, but it does have the sensor (at least Op-com gives me readings from it when I turn the wheel)

    Apparently, If you look at the steering rack from above, if it has a speed sensor there will be a plug where it meets the steering column and there won't if it doesn't have the sensor.

    My garage found out the hard way when they replaced my rack.
