I was in your shoes with a 2014 328 (bought used so not as much of a loss). I got a good offer at Carmax and took them up on it. Carmax is the best way to go if you can't or won't sell yourself.

The steering feel has been retuned to add weight/dffort significantly since the 2012 introduction (especially in sport mode) so the steering effort aspect is more difficult to pinpoint. But the BMW...

I've owned an F10 and F30 without VSS. My current F30 has VSS as part of DHP. The steering is more responsive to input compared to the previous cars.
