Seems we are all coming from different directions here. The point of reference is getting even more confused it seems, if traditional BMW feel is now not viewed as the benchmark.
Depends which E90. Most later LCI E90's have electric steering (so called efficient dynamics) which lightened the steering. Mine is electric and does feel lighter than my previous 330d pre-LCI.
