Maybe the perceived differences arise from 550 vs. 535, but this just doesn't ring true.
Some people equate "heavy" with "feel". Which is a fallacy.

The new Ferraris have been noted for having hyper light steering, but full of feel.

Same with our cars when the steering weight is increased. It's just heavier, not more full of feel.
