Couldn't agree with you more on this. For me switching from Comfort to Sport mode the steering does feel heavier but there is no more feel. In fact the heavyness feels artificial in the F10.

Granted i still prefer this setup over my E90 which felt awesome if you are driving on a smooth road tossing the car into fast corners but once you hit any bumps or dips the car pounds the hell out of you. Sometimes it hits so hard you would swear the chassis would crack or the windshield would break.
