Assuming DHP in both F16 and F16, I would assume the F16 would handle better?

My thing is I don't want body roll, or the least amount possible. I want it to drive as much like a 550i as possible.
I'm in Canada, the packages could be different.
E70 sport package here adds stability bar, other components are cosmetic, suspension is standard. Toque vector is not available on E70.

Maybe it's the steering wheel as well. I could drive my E70 at 140km/h on twisted mountain roads with single hand, with F16, I have to hold steering wheel with both hands even at 120km/h in sport mode, it just doesn't give you the confidence. The steering is heavy in sport mode, but you can feel it's artificial.
