I know it's suppose to cater for the more mature driver but to miss out on that feedback with the steering, I'm a little sad.
It's too light for feedback. It's pretty much fake electronic feedback.

I honestly don't like the steering on my E60 when compared to the E90/E92.

The 1er and 3er have the type of steering that I like. It makes me feel secure and it's predictable. The E60 feels like the mature, luxury steering, then the F10 is just a whole other world.

This is just a 535 though, the steering is different on the F10 M5. Insideline says it feels like it's active steering since it's so quick and responsive. The F10 535 did not feel like that to me so it's hard to compare the two.

Take an F10 for a test drive. Let me know what you think, I'd be interested to hear another persons thoughts that has an E60.

My next one is going to be an E90/2 M3 or E60 M5. The F10 just isn't for focuses less on driving and more on "bells and whistles".

Don't take this literally, but it just crossed my mind:

The e60 vs f10 feels like the e46 m3 VS the 335.

335 is much 'nicer' but e46 m3 is more of a drivers car.
Same goes with the f10. It's nicer but the e60 is more of a drivers car and driver oriented.
