    better question... why do they feel different? the 335i seems very heavily hydraulic and shows great resistance to driver input, the M3 on the other hand seems to be much more electric or assisted (the 1m as well), does anyone know why BMW did this?
    2007 335i (100% stock with mods)

    N54 is not a German 2JZ lol

    Did you ever find a solution for the Xi steering response? I would pay some serious money to fix the slow, dull steering at center.

    Nope. The only idea I had was maybe the rack and pinion (just the internal gears) could be swapped from inside an M3 rack into an XI housing. Like swapping out ring and pinion gears in a diff. Have no idea if it is even possible or how difficult.
