There is no other option for an F30, you get the "servotronic" steering. VSS actually makes the steering tighter than the standard setup. It's likely just software. So the VSS is an option you want if you like the steering feel of the E9x as it gives the same tightness in Sport mode and feels considerably better than the standard setup.

I won't even comment on your other ramblings.
