e92 vs e46 OEM m3 Suspension

For those who have driven both back to back, do you feel that the stock e46 m3 suspension is stiffer than the e92 EDC on normal/sport?

My E46 was obviously older than the E92, but I found the E92 to be a lot tighter than the E46.

What setting are you comparing? I was comparing the stock e46 vs e92 EDC normal (once light). However my comparison is a DCT vs stick shift e46..

I had an Eibach Pro Kit on my E46 M3, but I generally run in normal mode with EDC on my E92. E92 seems a lot tighter...

My E46 seems more over sprung/softly damped than my E90, which I feel has better damping characteristics. I recall my E46 making a pogo-like sensation after hitting a series of dips or bumps, but never on a single dip/bump.
