I really hope Scott answers my question, and doesn't use cop outs such as: "Well you don't have to get a newer BMW", "Have fun with another brand", or go the defender route saying everyone is wrong about the F30's steering.
Interestingly, one of the most revered cars in handling and feel was the
Honda S2000 and even before that, the famed NSX. Steering rack? NOT hydraulic, but electric.

I know other companies use BMW 3 series as a benchmark and attempt to emulate and build on it, BMW may have too much pride to take an S2000 and look into it to see why it's electric steering is so good.

And the ATS has received many very positive reviews for it's steering, and it too is electric. OUCH.
