Like the steering in F30

For the sake of debate and since I'm in the minority I wanted to say after a week with my F30 I prefer the steering compared to my past 2011 msport 335i. I find it to be very responsive and gives a nimbleness to the car. It just feels like it maneuvers a little better. Granted, the bumps and cracks in the road are felt less in the wheel. I took the car on a windy road (hwy 84, those of you in the bay area know what I'm talking about) and the turns felt good. Maybe if you are really getting into the turns more extreme then the older steering system translates better. I did like the heavy feel which felt more like a sports car, but at this point I barely miss it.

I hated the the 328 F30 steering
Still kept the car, but also went back and ordered a 2007 N54
I did test drive the 340 and i like the steering a lot better

Everyone of my non-car enthusiast friends that drove both cars liked the F30

The 340i is definitely greatly improved.
