Active Steering or Variable Sport Steering, have you driven both? ?

I have a E90 with Active Steering wich I like very much. I would like to know the opinion of somebody that has driven both types of steerings and how they compare in normal city driving, parking, etc.

I've had both. AS IMO is far better than VSS but it takes a little getting use to. TO the best of my knowledge AS isn't offered in the F 30.

I too have owned 3 Series with AS (2007 E92-335i) and now VSS (F30-335i).

I prefer the VSS, which to me feels more natural than the AS did in low speed manoeuvres. The VSS is definitely better (faster and more direct) than the standard steering, especially in Sport mode. AS has been replaced by VSS.
