lci steering improvement

holy, got a loaner from my dealer (2017 lci f30) and man what a long way the steering has come. its getting closer to the e90. it has a good weight to it, precise and doesnt feel artificial, you gotta drive it! i hope theres some kind of way to retrofit this, has anyone found anything ?

Has anyone confirmed that the F30 LCI steering components are indeed different/upgraded?

It's supposed to be an improvement over the pre LCI. A lot of things were changed.

I believe its Variable Speed Sensing (VSS).

Edit. Im wrong, was called that on an older vehicle I owned that was German made. (Cadillac Catera). Steering was light and easy at low speeds and was tighter and heavier at higher speeds. ZF designed steering gear.

Wonder if this is the same theory behind the LCI steering improvements.

You can track the part changes here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=32_2071
Opinions on the changes are from reading more reputable sources like caranddrivers. I have my own opinion but they’re just mine

So how do you go about upgrading the steering with the dealer? I hate the steering so much and really want to upgrade it.
