30i/30d vs M40i steering effort

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well. I am getting some very mixed information regarding the steering effort required between a 30i or 30d (with dynamic handling package) VS an M40i in comfort mode. I know that the M40 is a slightly stiffer proposition but I am keen to know if you have driven both options if you felt that in comfort mode the steering required more effort in the M40i. Both cars (assuming you have the Dynamic handling package) have the variable sport steering. I very much look forward to hearing back from you.

Welcome aboard. I'm only familiar with what I have (M40i) Definitely test drive both until you're real convinced you like what you purchased. I bought mine sight unseen. I think the steering in the M40 is excellent. I drive in Sport mode....
