+1 to the OP.
I've always liked BMW's steering feel from my limited time with my brother's E92 328i and E90 335i, but I've never owned a BMW myself. Just love love love the steering feel of my X1, feels so similar to my brother's cars (not surprising since same platform). Its definitely heavier than other cars I've owned/driven, but like the OP said, it feels just right. I'm currently taking a vacation in LA and the handling difference between my 09 A4 (coilovers) and my X1 (springs + spacers) is soo huge, I wished I had my X1 here.
Life's a bitch and then ya die, that's why we get high, cause you'll never know when you gonna go!
