Just because its stiff doesnt mean its connected. at slow speed things may not be the way they feel.
I'm referring to the road feel through the steering wheel, not the weighting. Go drive a 911, CTSV, and M3 back to back. Its hard to explain, but easier to "feel"

My wife's X5 steering is unnecessarily "heavy" at parking lot but super light at high speeds, the opposite of the M3. that is "weight" not "feel".
