Drive with your e9x to the BMW dealer and jump in to a F30.
you'll directly notice it. In direct comparison it feels more like playing Playstation with a force feedback wheel than driving a real car.
It's really a shame....
And I think that the E90's steering is underboosted and unnecessarily heavy, substituting effort for "feel". I much prefer the E39 or E46's steering to the E9X, and I feel the F30 is back in the sweet spot. At least on the cooking versions, as my seat time in an M3 is next to nothing.

To each their own.
