Softer riding tires for OEM 19 inch rims

Just switched from the 18s to the 19s. Both sets of tires had Michelin pilot sports (in stock sizes) but the 19s seem to be riding firmer than expected. To put this into perspective, I switched from 18s to 20s on a 08 535i and the switch seemed far less dramatic. (the tires were the OEM dunlops on the 18s and Toyo T1Rs on the 20s) I understand the suspension is softer on the 5 series and the stock 18s had runflats but I was not expecting the change from 18s to 19s on the m3 to be so substantial.

I was thinking of switching tires as I dont really drive my m3 cab that aggressively on the street. What you guys think? Also any recommendations? I thought the toyos I had on the 20s were OK nothing great. Thanks in advance
