Question on Variable Sport Steering

I've specced VSS on my F30 330d M Sport, along with adaptive suspension. I did this in search of a bit more steering feel (being hydraulic rather than electric) and a sharper response.

I understand the situation re variable ratio not kicking in til 100 degrees of steering lock, but my main question is, does the VSS steering weight still adjust with the different driving modes, as it does with the standard electric steering?

I've picked up indications that it does, but not seen anything explicit on this. Can anyone tell me if this is the case?

It's too late to change now, as my car is set to arrive w/c 10th December, but I'd love to hear from anyone who has been able to compare both types of steering. Is there actually more feel with the hydraulic VSS, or have I wasted 250? I was impressed with the precision of the standard steering and it was quite positive in Sport, but it didn't have as much feel as I like.
