In M-mode, it just feels awesome-- and this is on the street, I can only imagine what it feels like on the track. There are several off/on-ramps and interchanges in my area that I love taking in my M3 due to their geometry (sharp curves, s-turns, etc.) These are where the feel of the new steering is most noticeable, when I'm changing speed while turning. My uneducated opinion is that the amount of assist is reduced which intensifies the driver's feel of the road and requires more input from him in order to turn the car. In unscientific terms... it is a more engaging driving experience.
What servotronic profile did you ask Mike to create for you?
We have changes that we consider "standard" with our performance software unless there are special requests made. After tons of customer feedback and testing, the modifications should feel just right in both sport and normal modes.
