Steering stiffness at high speeds

So i've noticed a strange behavior on my F30 steering feel. When driving at low speeds, the steering is nice and light in comfort. But once i'm driving on the highway (80kmh or more) after some time there is an intermittent stiffness to the steering when you want to pull to the right or left (as if something was lightly holding the steering). I've checked the tires and they are fine (enough thread and inflated properly).

Any ideas what that could be ?

Any chance you have the variable sport steering (VSS) option?

Nope, looking at the options, mine doesn't have this.

Does this problem occur every time irrespective of the road surface?

Yeah, it seems like the surface doesn't have any affect on this.
