Integral Active Steering

I find my steering to be very touchy, overreactive, artificial and requires as much attention as a sugared up hyperactive child! Is this because of my car's Integral Active Steering?? Does anyone have any extensive experience with side by side comparison of a car equipped with Integral Active Steering and one without this option?? This is the most DISAPPOINTING performance feature of my 2009 750i Sport!

Mein Auto: F02
My previous F02 didn't have Integral Active Steering but my second F02 does and it makes a huge difference when cornering, changing lanes, and/or in curves. It also makes handling the car a lot easier for me. Not sure about the touchy and overreactive thing but i definitely prefer driving my current F02 than the previous one.

We have both...

We have a 650i (mine) with Active Steering, and a 325i (hers) without it. Both my wife and I like the active steering; she STRONGLY prefers it.
