328i Sport Steering Settings??

I have a 328 loaner for a week. Are there any settings to get any steering weight or feel? Its so overboosted its nuts. You turn the wheel, and nothing even happens its soooo loose.

On my previous M3 when you would hit the sport settings, it would add some weight to the steering. I've played around with the sport settings, but there's only options for chassis and powertrain.

Any tricks to get a bit of weight or feel in the steering? I'm not even talking for "back road" driving, but honestly just to be able to drive around town.

Thanks

I don't believe our sport modes change the weight of the steering. Would be nice though.

The sport setting on my car definitely make my steering stiffer. It?s a subtle change though.

Really? Then again I don't put it in sports mode too often. I'll have to try it out.

Sports mode with chassis checked, should modify the steering weight.

It definitely does but I believe only if you have Sport+.

What do you mean by chassis checked?

Ahh! You're both right! It does feel heavier.

Its stiffer on Sport/Sport+ only when you have Servotronic, which is an option when you purchase. The weight is similar to E90.
