The only way to alter the weight of the steering is via the sports button selection. VSS on the F30 equipped with it (2012) or DHP (2013) only changes the ratio off center. You can absolutely feel it when you turn into a parking space.

You can park in sports mode very easily. You will feel the VSS whether in sports or comfort. It is not variable assist like Audi or the 5 series.

All said, in either mode the steering feel is dissapointing to me. Its not horrible, but I am not a fan of the electric steering vs hydraulic.
