I think E90 steering is a bit heavy in low speed (parking lot/reverse). E70 was even heavier believe it or not. E46 was perfect to me. But as already mentioned, E90 steering is how BMW steering is...

Go with 328i with manual and move up to a higher displacement engine next time when price difference is more negligible to you.
