What's more important is road feel (suspension tightness, handling in twisties, not steering) and what you need to know is this:

If you want superior road feel than your E90, you need to buy a used E36.

If you want equal road feel to your E90, you need to buy an F30 with the sport suspension.

If you want less road feel but a more comfortable ride than your E90, you need to buy an F30 with the standard suspension.

If you want the ability to change road feel on-the-fly, you need to buy an F30 with the Adaptive M Suspension.

With the steering questions, you're barking up the wrong tree. It's the F30 suspension that's markedly different than the E90. That's where your focus should be.
